Tiger's Eye Tiger's Eye, much like the eyes of a female cat, glitters with a small ray of light on the surface. This property of stone is known as chatoyancy. It is a brown quartz silicon dioxide having lustrous yellow and brown parallel fibers. The presence of iron oxides gives the stone the color of yellow-gold.

Tiger's Eye is very popular in jewelry making. It has the grounding energy of the earth, but embellished with glowing warmth. This stone is perfect for people in need of more confidence to accomplish their goals. It helps people to recognize self resources and use it for the attainment of their dreams apart from making them judge situations and determine the best possible way to approach it. Roman soldiers wore it, engraved with symbols, to protect them during battle.

Tiger's Eye is the anniversary stone for the ninth year of marriage and astrological sign for capricorn. It is found in the regions of South Africa, but the best stones is acquired from West Griqualand.
