All About Tiger's Eye Stone


How Can You Resist Its Warm Luster?

Shimmering with life, Tiger's Eye is a stone that seems to burn with an inner flame. Its appearance and apt name mimics its purpose; it gives the wearer a bold nature, bright focus, and cat-like patience and luck.

Tiger's Eye is a type of quartz stone, harvested mostly in Africa and Australia. Many cultures believe that wearing this stone will give a person an abundance of luck, courage, and focus.

This deep chocolate brown stone with gold and red hues is truly a beautiful stone and never fails to grab my attention.

Health Benefits

As silly as it may seem to someone who is unfamiliar with ancient healing, certain stones are said to have physical and emotional healing properties. This idea isn't limited to the Pagan religions; many Christians also believe in the powerful abilities of stones. I met a devote Christian lady who sold all sorts of amulets and believed that they had a power to heal and enhance your life.

Because of its strong focusing powers, Tiger's Eye is said to help with high blood pressure, stress, and increased stamina.

Metaphysical and Emotional Benefits

You need courage? Tiger's Eye is a very strong conductor of bravery. The Romans knew this, because they wore Tiger's Eye into battle.

This stone will also attract luck, keenly focus your mental abilites, and help repel any bad psychic vibes that try to harm you.


Zodiac Signs

Through my research, I've read that Tiger's Eye is associated with Virgos, Pisces, Capricorns, Leos and to a lesser degree, Scorpios. I'm a Scorpio, and Tiger's Eye happens to be my favorite stone. Regardless of your zodiac sign, anyone can wear a Tiger's Eye. Just be aware it may bond better with some zodiac signs than others. If you are already a bold, lucky person, wearing Tiger's eye too often may upset the balance of your energies. Conversely, this stone can overwhelm a very shy, timid individual or someone who has personality disorders. For some, it may be a stone you only want to wear on special occasions, to boost your solar plexus or root chakras or for a extra shot of courage and focus.


Chakra Healing

Tiger's Eye works best with your root chakra and your solar plexus chakra.

The root chakra is associated with the color red and is located at the base of the spine. Tiger's Eye compliments the root chakra because it deals with prosperity, health, and grounding,

The solar plexus chakra is yellow, which is one of the main colors in Tiger's Eye. This stone enhances the solar plexus abilities dealing ego and strength.

Cleansing and Charging

When I first received my Tiger's Eye from ebay, I had a hard time wearing it. I noticed that when I wore the amulet, it made me very angry and anxious. However, I didn't want to give up on it; I heard that Earth has very strong cleansing abilities, so I buried it in the ground for about 5 days. This made a huge difference! My stone has finally "accepted" me and now I've bonded with it nicely!

Before you wear any stone, you should cleanse off any negative energy that might have been left from a previous owner or just from other people handling the stone. Usually a good rinse with spring or blessed water is enough, (note: be careful, some stones can be damaged by a water rinse. Also, use only cold water. Hot or warm water can crack any stone!) but sometimes the energy imprint is too strong for water alone. The strong element of Earth will soak up any stubborn negative residue and completely cleanse your stone.

You may notice after wearing your stone for a while it doesn't seem to empower you as much as it used to. This means you need to refocus its energy and recharge your stone. You can renew it's energy simply by letting it bask in the light of a full moon.

This is a very interesting hub - I was drawn to it as my mother gave me a tiger's eye with an interesting history - I wear it often but had not idea of the beliefs attached to it - thanks for the information - B.

Thanks billips! I'm intrigued by your story. A stone with a special history makes it even more powerful and precious.

I believe if it has an interesting history, then it probably carries that energy as well.

I think mine had an interesting history too, but not a good one! That's why I had to cleanse it.

Tiger eye should be recharged in mid day to late day sun... Not the moon.

Thank you for your comment, the 3rd Power. I've heard that the sun and moon are both acceptable. I prefer the full moon :)

This was a good article! Thanks for putting this out there. I have a tiger's eye and I need to cleanse it because I think it just absorbed a lot of intense emotions thanks to my malachite which I recently have been wearing with me. Malachite intensifies your energies, good or bad and helps you analyse yourself. I need to cleanse both now to cleanse it of my turbulent emotions. For people reading this, I find it helpful to just put all your crystals in a bag and reach in and grab a random one. I find the bag gives you what you need. It certainly does in my case. Peace :)

Yes, it would be a very good stone to have for that purpose. Make sure you clean and charge it first.

Tiger eye is a very good stone and the article is bang on dot. Thanks a lot for the information. One way of cleaning any crystal or stone is take some clean water add some sea salt to it and mix it well. Keep the stone or crystal in water. Before placing the stone/crystal request it to expel all negative energy. Keep the crystal in water for 24 hours. After 24 hours remove the crystal and pour the salt water in a sink. Wash the crystal/stone under running water. Charge it with moon energy or sun energy. And the crystal/ stone is ready for use. Bless be!
