Tiger’s Eye is a golden-brown banded variety of quartz that exhibits chatoyancy, or the “cat’s eye effect”–a luminous streak that moves as you rotate the stone.
Tiger Eye is a stone often feared and revered for being an all seeing and all knowing eye. It is said to grant the wearer with a keen ability of observation to see with great clarity. In Ancient Egypt, it was used in the statue eyes of their deities. Often used to portray courage and strength, Roman soldiers carried the stone into battle. The colors of the stone showing deep browns with rich layers of gold made it appealing to be used for jewelry. Throughout history, Tiger’s Eye is found to be sought after for good fortune, prosperity and protection.
