What are tiger’s eye beads? 
Tiger's Eye forms when quartz replaces bluish-grey crocidolite. Crocidolite is composed of parallel fibers, creating the 'tiger's eye effect'. The golden yellow colour is iron within crocidolite staining the quartz.

Tiger-eye reflects light like a reel of silk, with beads polished to show their characteristic stripes of pearly luminescence - caused by light reflecting off the thin parallel inclusions in the stone. 

Colours range from a rich golden-yellow to dark-brown, as well as red tiger eye.

Tiger-eye is good for those worried about health. It’s positive energy builds will-power and inner-strength. Traditionally it has been used to heal wounds, eyes, and the lower legs and feet – as well as for digestion and stomach problems. It’s also said to bring spiritual well-being and psychic protection.

Tiger-eye is also thought to not only attract wealth, but helps you to keep money by allowing you to consider all factors, like reducing greed or wastefulness. It is also a good for those tired or under stress, as it relaxes and clarifies thought.

Tiger eye has been used for centuries. Roman soldiers wore it for protection, as they thought the stone could see more than the human eye.

Similarity to the Tiger!
Its name comes from the bands resembling a tiger's eye. Some say other benefits are associated to the animal - like focus, balance, strength, clear sight, determination, courage and determination. The ideal stone to concentrate on a goal in life. The gemstone can bring the patience necessary, like a tiger waiting to pounce, to plan a project or a new way of life.

Cat’s & Hawk’s Eye
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 or falcon’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. It's believed to cool overwhelming sexual passion.
