tigers_eye_hawks_eyeˈtī-gərs-ˌ ī

Stone of Grounded Balance

Told to contain both the power of the Sun and the Earth, the ancient Egyptians used Tiger’s Eye to transmit the power of the Sun God Ra, to create material success. As Tiger’s Eye combines the Sun energies and the Earth energies they help to create a high vibrational state that is grounding as well, which in turn draws spiritual energies down to the Earth.

Tiger’s Eye is a member of the Chatoyant group of Quartz, the fibrous crocidolite mineral is the cause for this shimmering and flashes of light; presenting in several colors according to the exact nature and amount of the inclusions. Tiger’s Eye is black with iron oxide staining that creates the yellow and brown stripes.

  • Hawk’s Eye is Blue and is less silicified than Tiger’s Eye, but is the same material
  • Bull’s Eye or Ox Eye has a dark red/mahogany as it’s chief color
  • Cat’s Eye a term coined in the 18th century is not a Tiger’s Eye as the chatoyancy is not the same This is not a term generally used any longer as it is also a term applied to the green variety of Chrysoberyl
  • Eagle’s Eye is another name for Pietersite
  • Falcon’s Eye is a term used for Hawk’s Eye in Germany
  • Red & Strawberry Tiger’s Eye are a result of having been heated naturally or artificially
  • Tiger Iron is similar to Tiger’s Eye with a Hematite rich make up
  • Wolf’s Eye is a term sometimes used for a material whose color make up is somewhere between the brown of typical Tiger’s Eye and the blue of the typical Hawk’s Eye

Tiger’s Eye Scientific Properties


Tiger's Eye GemstoneMohs Hardness of 7 with a trigonal crystal structure

Tiger’s Eye is a quartz composite; it begins as a fibrous blue crocidolite (which is comprised of sodium and iron) and as the quartz becomes embedded between the fibers the transformation begins…Hawk’s Eye is the gemstone formed first, then as the process progresses and further quartz is embedded it becomes Tiger’s Eye.

During the process the sodium and iron is dissolved, traces of hydrated oxide from the iron are left behind and the quartz takes on the fibrous formations as well as the blue hue of the crocidolite; this is what creates the parallel lines within these gemstones.

Tiger Eye is found in only one place in South Africa, very near many of the diamond mines. It is said that there are mountains just outside of Griquatown that are made up almost entirely of Tiger’s Eye.
