    For courage and strength, you need a tiger eye!  When you are looking for wealth, courage, strength, protection, and good fortune you better don’t buy a lottery ticket. So you are better off buying this beautiful brown silky gemstone. Besides that… it is more beautiful and is multi-purpose (in comparison to that ugly piece of paper they call a lottery ticket).

    The tiger eye is 1 of the oldest talismans

    This gemstone is considered one of the oldest talismans in the world. For example, the Egyptians thought that with this intriguing gemstone you can see everything and you know everything. Therefore they used a tiger eye to make the eyes of the deity statues. With this gemstone’s eyes, those statues got a divine vision.

    The powers of this gem.

    In older days people believed that when you wear the tiger eye you can see everything, even through doors and walls. And you get the protection of the sun and the earth, which gives you power and wealth.

    Linked to the powerful tiger.

    This means that when you wear a jewel made of tiger eye, or even such a stone in your pocket will give you courage, the right use of power, and integrity. Therefore it was very popular with the Roman soldiers. Although their masters did not respect that power since integrity and the right use of power was not very important to them looking to the history of the Roman Empire.

    What does it look like?

    Tiger eye has a brown color, actually more golden brown color. When you move the (polished) stone you see the ‘silky shine or luster of the stone moving’. That phenomenon is called ‘chatoyant’. This gemstone has ‘stripes’, all-in-one direction. The stripes are quartz crystals and fibers that turned into limonite.

    More ‘eye’ gemstones exist

    This gemstone is not the only gem with chatoyancy. You have the ‘cat’s eye’. The cat’s eye is darker blue or black and has the same beautiful fibers, but the fibers are straight. And they look like a straight single band of light across the stone; like the iris of a cat.
    Then there is the ‘Falcon’s eye’, which is blue-gray to blue-green and there is the ‘Ox Eye in mahogany or reddish color.

    Beware of fake tiger eye

    Today on the market you can find red or blue variations of tiger eyes and most of them are dyed or heated. This does not affect the powers of the gemstone. And they are really beautiful, but not an original non-treated gemstone. But to be honest… I love the blue variation!

    The powers of the tiger eye are valuable for the believers and you can say ‘better safe than sorry’ when you doubt.

    The fact is that it is a gorgeous gemstone, that has a great appearance in a piece of jewelry. It looks great in the combination with gold or lapis lazuli. And you hardly see the matte variation of it or jewelry with the raw version.  I advise you to have a look at the beautiful examples and whether you believe in the powers of the tiger eye or not. Believe in the powers of its beauty.
