Tiger’s Eye is a well-loved, beautiful stone from the quartz family. It gets its name from the resemblance of a tiger’s golden eye when cut or polished. When light reflects off its tightly banded brown and gold fibers, it seems to move and change. Rounded Tiger’s Eye stones are more commonly used in jewelry because its carved shape allows for maximum reflectivity. It is most commonly found in a golden-brown color but can also be found in a red (Dragon’s Eye) and blue (Falcon’s Eye) coloring.
Tiger’s eye is a great stone for diverting unwanted energies by creating confusion as a defense. It is commonly used for protection for either yourself or for others who need it.
