#WednesdayWonders – Tiger’s Eye #Gemstones

I am super excited to share another favorite stone with you today!

This is a stone I have loved all my life — even before I knew its name.

In my humble opinion, the Tiger’s Eye is one of the most gorgeous stones on earth. Rick made himself a ring with it about 40 years ago and I have a bracelet that I wear often. It is so versatile and has such amazing properties.

There are several varieties of Tiger’s Eye but the most common is brown. There is also yellow, red, and blue Tiger’s Eye.

This stone brings courage, calmness, dispels negativity, balances yin and yang in the brain, and increases intuition. It is a stone of the mind, not the body.

It encourages new beginnings (courage) which can lead to success and possibly wealth. I combine this stone in a grouping with jade, citrine, and aventurine to draw creativity and help channel it.

Tiger’s Eye has been nicknamed the Shapeshifter and invites the wearer to embrace their inner strength, personal willpower, and to call on the powers of protection. Traditionally the Tiger Eye Gemstone was carried as a protective amulet against the forces of evil. It was said to ward off curses and to keep the wearer safe from ill-wishes. But beyond the powers of protection, the Tiger Eye comes with a whole host of healing properties.

The root chakra, sacral and solar plexus chakras all work in harmony with this stone to balance and recharge. Tiger’s Eye is an amazing amulet for dispelling fear, weaving in higher levels of protection, and bringing positive powers of transformation into everyday life.

I would be willing that most of you have at least one Tiger’s Eye either in a piece of jewelry or as a single stone. Give me your thoughts!

  1. I agree, Jan. It’s a wonderful stone. I made a necklace (years ago) from brown and black tiger eye. The black doesn’t have the depth of chatoyancy that the brown has, but the combination looked nice for the necklace. I made little charms of it to go on Crystal’s collar, for courage. Hugs on the wing.

    1. I can picture the necklace, Teagan. I have thought about combining the Blue and Red Tiger’s Eye with the Brown and I think that would also be really pretty. And how cool to put them on Crystal’s collar! Thank you so much for stopping by! Hugs!

  2. I’ve always loved the beauty of Tiger Eye rocks too and gravitated to them. I have several and just adore their deep colors. Mine are in a box and I need to get them out. They’re so pretty. And carry such amazing properties. Another wonderful rock in our collections.

  3. I need to get me one of these! My son has collected many gemstones over the years, but I don’t think I’ve seen this one in his collection. I’ll have to check, but if it’s not there, I’ll be getting one soon. Great post, Jan! 🙂

  4. I have a few tiger’s eyes, Also a bracelet which I let make for me. I wanted it because of its calming yet centering and mind-balancing features. Isn’t the blue one also called eagle’s eye? Just coming to my mind.

    1. I love wearing my bracelet. I do find it calming and grounding. I don’t know about the blue Tiger’s Eye being referred to as Eagle’s Eye, but the red is Hawk Eye. Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a comment, Erika!

  5. Jan, can you recommend a book on crystals for a friend of mine? I’m more self-taught when it comes to crystals and looked up many of the gems online. She asked me for a book, and I didn’t know what to recommend. I love the tiger’s eye and it is a gorgeous piece displayed above. ❤

    1. There are so many great books out there about crystals and their healing properties. It depends on what your friend is looking for, but I highly recommend the Crystal Bible by Judy Hall. It’s very good. I have another one that I go to often for elixirs and that is The Complete Guide to Crystal Chakra Healing by Philip Permutt. Hope that helps. Thank you for stopping by!
