Tiger's-eye is polished to show its characteristic band of pearly luminescence, resulting from light reflecting off its thin parallel inclusions in the quartz. Colours range from a rich golden yellow to dark brown. Tiger's-Eye is good for those worried about health as it's said to guard against hypochondria. It builds will-power and inner-strength, and has traditionally been used to heal wounds, eyes, and the lower legs and feet. It's also said to bring spiritual well-being and psychic protection – as well as attracting beauty and abundance.

Similar stones are cat's-eye and hawk's-eye – all with bands of pearly luminescence creating a supernatural appearance. Cat's-eye can be yellowish-brown to green with a white band, and is said to bring wealth and pleasure from your children. Hawk's-eye has a blue radiance. When a bright light source is directed at the side of the stone, one side of the eye will be milky white and the other remains coloured. When the stone is rotated, the colours switch.
