Tiger's Eye Tumbled Stone - A Quality - Solar Plexus Chakra
1 Tiger's Eye Tumbled Stone - A Quality -
Mythology: Tiger’s eye (tigers eye, tiger eye, tiger iron) is a member of the quartz group of chalcedonies. It is one of the chatoyant gemstones. Chatoyancy exhibits a changeable silky luster as light is reflected within the thin parallel fibrous bands. This effect is due to the fibrous structure of the material. Tiger iron is composed of tiger’s eye, red jasper and black hematite. The rippled wavy bands of color often resemble a scenic view. Marra Mamba is a form of tiger iron found in one area of Australia near Mount Brockman. It is a very rare type of tiger iron that contains shades of red, green, yellow, and blue. This area has been mined out for many years so very little of the “true” marra mamba is available today.
Usage: Traditionally it was carried as an amulet against curses or ill-wishing, and is known to give you courage, self confidence and strength of will. It enhances creativity and is one of the stones that aid kundalini awakening. This is a stone that helps us to be more active, mentally as well as physically… and its major work is within the lower chakras. It will stimulate the base chakra, sacral chakra and the solar plexus chakra, where its energy has a very powerful effect. The vibration of ‘the will’ which is the predominant energy of the solar plexus chakra is strong within Tigers Eye Stone.
