This wonderful stone Tiger Eye or The Amulet Stone is a formation trough oxidation of original crocidolite fibers and its transformation in limonite with quartz. Its silky shine that the limonite fibers generate in a round cut to the stone resemblance an eye and so we have the name of a stone used in the Medieval time for protection.
WHAT IS TIGER EYE:
Tiger's eye is formed when parallel veins of crocidolite (blue asbestos) fibres are first altered to iron oxides and then replaced by silica.
As a result it is more opaque, and has a rich yellow to brown colour. When cut en cabochon, the gem has a fine lustre.
The major source of Tiger's Eye is Griquatown West, in South Africa.
Spiritually : The Tiger Eye helps overcome dificult times in our lives, without loosing our courage. It allows us to keep burning the flame of trust in a higher power that make us to go foward in the dark times.
Subconsciously : Tiger Eye helps attenuate our percepcion and impression of exterior stress situations making us less susceptible to a environment we dont like.
Mentally: It helps us to be more wise in dificult and complex situations. When you find yourself in doubt "take 5 with a Tiger Eye", it will help clear it out.
Physically : It is a pain reliever, as its vibration can block the energy flow in the body. It has a calming effect on the nerves.
Application: As the Tiger Eye blocks the natural flow of the energy in the human body, it must not be worn for more than a week in permanent contact with the body. For the spiritually effects it is best to make use of the Tiger Eye in meditation.
