Gold tigers eye is a gemstone in which crocidolite has been replaced by quartz, while its fibrous structure is preserved. The shimmering eye-like nature, called chatoyancy, is caused by these fibers. Found primarily in Africa and India, it is prized as a gemstone and often fashioned into jewellery.
Tigers eye is supportive in a few different ways: It jump starts creativity when you're feeling stagnant, it can bring you courage (try holding it over your sacral chakra) with out-loud affirmations, it offers protection as an all-around "good luck" charm. Tigers eye holds associations as bringing abundance. As a healing stone, tigers eye creates a balance of power, this protection stone assists in accomplishing goals. It is helpful for recognizing needs of both the self and others, and brings out integrity. Tigers eye promotes clarity of intention and enhances practical perception. Heals issues of self-criticism, creativity blockage, overcoming fears or inner conflicts. Supports addictive personalities in making changes.
Approx 20-28mm Tumbled and polished
Ethically Sourced: It was very important in the crystal and gemstone sourcing that it was purchased only from mining suppliers that had the correct certificates that established their operations as safe and environmentally sound. My wholesaler is adamant on ensuring the crystals are fair-trade, where income is being used to support a diverse group of small manufactures and families. Most of the semi-precious stones and crystals come from family owned mines that are passed down from generations (like a family farm here in Canada).
I understand it can be difficult to feel a stone's energy when shopping online. When selecting stones for your order, I personally select the stones with intention for you based on the stock available.
There can be variance in the stone's colouring and shape, as is the world of stone, gems and crystals are non-refundable. No two pieces are alike. Each one will slightly vary in size, shape and colour.
Disclaimer: While using your gems/crystals in practice, please note that Hermit's Path does not guarantee any stone to have any physical or mental health impact. I do not make any claims that it will help. Remember, this is a personal practice... connecting with the energy is not a substitute for traditional medicine where it may be needed. :)
