WHAT IS TIGER'S EYE? Tiger's eye is a member of the Quartz family. The 'cat-eye' effect of Tiger's Eye stone has this reflective characteristic because of the visual magic of a fibrous inner structure, called 'Chatoyancy'. Gold Tiger’s Eye is the best-known, but it also comes in gold, red, and blue varieties.
WHY IT'S AWESOME? This stone, coined from the French "œil de chat", meaning "cat's eye" has history of being an 'all-seeing' talisman, even carried into battled by Roman soldiers for protection and the ability to see that which is 'unseeable'. Egyptians used the tiger's eye stone in the eyes of statues.
