Healing Properties of Tiger Eye
Tiger eye helps you stay centered and calmly practical despite the ups and downs of life. It helps you balance polarities and accept contradictions, taking life as it comes and responding to the needs of the moment without judgment. It is a helpful stone for protracted difficult situations, as it lends endurance and keeps you in the best state of mind to deal with problems as they come without getting overwhelmed, hopeless, or reactionary.
As a stone that is brown to yellow in color, Tigers Eye strengthens the first three chakras, which correspond to grounding, creativity, and willpower respectively. Tiger Eye thus makes a great stone to carry and wear every day as it offers a fundamental level of support for creating a life that works for you.
Tiger’s Eye supports vitality, physical wellness, and endurance. It’s a great stone to wear if you are sick or dealing with chronic fatigue or other illnesses that make you tired, worn-down, or exhausted.
Because it works on all three lower chakras, Tiger Eye can help you act confidently from a place that is in alignment with your true self, your own values, and who you are and want to be. If your sense of yourself is feeling vague or you have no sense of direction, wearing Tiger eye regularly can help you solidify your personality into a strong, centered person.
Tiger Eye as a Gemstone
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. Faceting tiger eye can sometimes dull this effect, so usually it is worn as round beads or cabochons.
