Metaphysical Properties:


Tiger’s Eye can be used to re-center one’s perception of themselves, encouraging feelings of self-confidence and inner strength. Supporting integrity of the self, this stone promotes stability throughout change and creativity in times of frustration. A stone of protection, Tiger’s Eye was worn by Roman soldiers when headed into battle. This stone is chatoyant, which means that aligned inclusions cause bands of shining light to be reflected. Chatoyant derives from the French word “chatoyer”, which means “to shine like a cat’s eyes”.
