Tiger’s Eye Meaning and Healing Properties

Introduction to Tiger's Eye

Tiger eye stone is a member of the quartz family. Its fibers are formed by the common rock-forming mineral hornblende (usually subspecies crocidolite) embedded in quartz. This silky blue-black crocidolite fiber makes the quartz in which it is in blue-green brilliance and forms a kind of stone called eagle eye stone. When these crocidolite inclusions are oxidized, it has a characteristic brown and golden hue. The tiger’s eye of the slab is formed, and the blue crocidolite sliver is likely to be there. Tiger eye stones will turn red if they are placed near a heat source, but most of the red tiger eye stones on the market are artificially heated to change the color. The beautiful stripes on the tiger’s eye emphasize one of its functions-transfer energy. Like all stones that look like eyes after being cut and polished, the tiger’s eye stone is a powerful bodyguard and evil spirit.
