Eye of the Tiger

Hello Fabulous You

Did you know Tigers Eye Stones come in a range of colours including red, brown, gold, cream, black and blue. Gold is the one you will see most often and has lovely bands of yellow-golden colour through it, mimicking the eye of a tiger.

It is the stone related to the star sign Leo and pieces and cost as little as a £1, so with Mothers Days so close you can treat mum and have some money left in your bank account.

Some believe stones have powers and each group of stones have their own qualities associated.

Tigers Eye is said to help convert anxiety and fear into practical logic and action and promotes balance and strength in difficult times, and to relieve doubt.

It is believed to be a powerful stone that helps one to release fear and aids harmony and balance. It stimulates taking action, and helps you to make decisions with discernment and understanding, unclouded by your emotions.

It aids emotional healing; decreasing anxiety; happiness; organization/order; courage; focus, objectivity, bravery and courage. It can help eliminate the ‘blues’ and helps your life blossom and protection.

The Ancient Romans carried it as a talisman to safeguard against their enemies and for bravery when going into battle. I wonder if Ancient Roman family-members gave their beloved such tokens?

Tigers eyes can be carved in to many shapes all showing off its gold or red radiance. Every piece is unique and individual for the wearer.

In jewellery one will often see Tigers Eye combines / set in gold as it have the same colour pallet as the stone. Personally I prefer stones mixed silver / white metal as I feel it enhances stones.
