The Origins of Tigers Eye
Tigers Eye is a member of the Quartz family of crystals and in practice,
it harmonizes very well with any-and-all crystalline Quartz stones. The colour is an earthy red-ish brown with streaks of gold and yellow cutting through its earth tones. (There are other colour variations of Tigers Eye, but we will talk about those another time). It quite literally looks like fire and earth coming together, encased in solid swirls of beauty. Many believe that Tigers Eye crystals resemble the natural gold and brown we see in actual Tigers’ eyes, and historically, it has been used by many ancient cultures to ward of spirits, provide protection, inspire bravery, and receive good luck.
To date, the highest quantities of Tigers Eye can be found in South Africa, with smaller amounts located in India, Australia, and the US. These stones register with a hardness of seven on the MOHs scale and have been used to make pieces of jewellery since the Ancient Egyptian times.
Whether you choose to adorn your body with this stone or not, there are plenty of ways to reap the benefits offered by the ever-powerful Tigers Eye.

Use this stone to energize your physical body with your internal sense of empowerment as you take on new projects, engage in creative pursuits, and face strenuous tasks or extended periods of duress.

Cleansing Tigers Eye
We want to encourage you to learn about the importance of cleansing and recharging your crystals on a regular basis. You can do so at home, quickly and easily, to reinvigorate their vibrations and strengthen their ability to benefit your life.
When your crystals pick up energies from the world around them (as they often do) those energies need to be released, as they could impact and alter the crystal’s natural vibration. It’s important to restore that natural vibration before using the crystal, and/or after every few uses. Working with clear crystals will strengthen your intentions.
There are several methods for recharging your crystals that you can read about here, but if you’re looking for a quick tip that you can use any time, try burying your crystal in a small patch or bowl of dirt for several hours. Mother nature will help restore your Tigers Eye with is natural strength and vitality.
As Tigers Eye is part of the Quartz family it is safe to cleanse your gems with water.
