Eternal Crystals: Tiger Eye

The gemstone I want to share with you today is Tiger Eye, sometimes spelled Tigereye, Tiger’s Eye, or Tiger’s-Eye. I love the name of this stone, of course, in addition to its silky luster and rich yellow and golden brown stripes.

For those who are interested in gemology, Tiger Eye is a chatoyant quartz, one of three varieties that have a cat’s-eye effect. Tiger Eye is black, with iron oxide staining that creates its coloring. The most important source of Tiger Eye is in South Africa, although chatoyant quartz is also found in Australia, Brazil, India, and the USA.

I’m going to start with the Tiger Eye card from the Eternal Crystals Oracle deck by Jade-Sky with card artwork by Jane Marin (Blue Angel Publishing). Next I’ll share the Tiger’s Eye card from The Tarot of Gemstones and Crystals by Helmut G. Hofmann, illustrated by photos of stones (AGMüller Urania). Finally, I will share some of the jewelry I have made using this beautiful and versatile stone.

In the Eternal Crystals Oracle deck, Tiger Eye is card number 39, connected to “Animals – Solar Plexus Chakra.” The stone is said to highlight our connection with the animal kingdom. It is also associated with our own personal will power and the solar plexus chakra, located between the navel and solar plexus, representing the core of our personality, our identity, our ego.

In Hofmann’s Tarot of Gemstones and Crystals, Tiger’s Eye is given the role of the Ten of Coins. Hofmann writes, “The tiger’s eye teaches us to tolerate different points of view, making it possible for us to see unity. It strengthens our inner eye, increases powers of concentration, and makes us more flexible.” These qualities can of course lead to security, success, wealth, and fulfilled relationships – common keywords for the Ten of Coins.

I use Tiger Eye gemstones quite a lot in my jewelry creations. Here are a few of my favorites. All are easy to purchase through my Etsy shop. I am happy to offer you FREE SHIPPING (USA orders only). Just use FREESHP as a coupon code when you check out!
