The Benefits of Tiger's Eye Stone

Les Bénéfices de la Pierre Oeil de Tigre

A Little History

In Mésopotamie

    We know that the Eye of Tiger stone was already known and nicknamed: Oculus Belus (eye of Belus), referring to the greatest Babylonian god Bellus-Marduk.

    The Romans

      Under the Roman Empire, the legionnaires discovered the tiger eye in the mines of Cornwall in England. The soldiers decided, at that time, to wear them in amulet to protect themselves from wounds and swords during battles.

      Later in the Middle Ages

      The Tiger's Eye is used for to repel spells and evil spirits.

      At the beginning of the 19th century

      The Tiger Eye Stone is found in South Africa. Initially, it is considered a precious stone and is marketed at very high prices. Then, other deposits are discovered, the exploitation is more intense and it becomes semi-precious. It is then that it is increasingly used in jewellery or decorative objects.


      Mineralogical characteristics

      The tiger eye is a mineral from the Quartz family, it is more specifically considered as a micro-crystalline quartz. This means that its crystals are visible to the naked eye.

      In physics, this stone is therefore part of the group Oxides and its chemical formula, very complex is SiO2.

      The tones of this mineral are multiple, they vary from yellow-brown to bite with many reflections of irroration, depending on the light rays and the angle of observation.

      A hardness of 7 is noted on the Mohs scale and a density of 2.68.

      Its structure is fibrous, it is explained in particular by the presence at the origin of another mineral called crocidolite. Over time, the crocidolite deteriorates and dissolves, so the quartz crystals take position following the original fibrous structure. The decomposition of the mineral then leaves iron oxide residues and the shimmering zones appear with brown / yellow tones characteristics of the tiger eye.

      The largest tiger eye deposits are found in South Africa and Sri Lanka. There are also other mines in Australia, Brazil, India, Burma and the United States.

      Purification and refilling

      In order to conserve all its benefits and energy, it is important to clean its tiger eye regularly.

      For this, we recommend several things.

      Like all quartz, it is necessary to dip the stone for several hours in water to purify it energetically. To do this, fill a glass or soil container with demineralized or salted water and place your stone there for at least three hours.

      For more efficiency, you must then recharge it by exposing it to natural light for a few hours : in the morning sun (from dawn) or in the rays of the moon (preferably during the full moon).

      Beware, the tiger eye is very sensitive to acids and too high heat.
