Tiger’s Eye is a chatoyant (cats' eye effect) variety of microcystalline quartz that has replaced the asbestos mineral crocidolite. The fibrous nature of the replaced crocidolite is what gives tiger-eye its phenomenal quality. Fortunately, it is quite abundant, therefore reasonably priced. It has been claimed that tiger-eye has the ability to improve one's eyesight and insight; meditating on tiger-eye in sunlight can enable one to look clearly into the past and the future. Tiger’s Eye helps to rebalance the body on all levels, encouraging optimism and trust in the future. It brings brightness and light into all situations and shines insight onto all problems. It is said to bring good luck, abundance and prosperity to its wearer. In many ancient civilizations, it was used as a talisman against bad luck and curses. Tiger’s Eye is a must have in any home for healing.
