Crystal Tiger Eye Story Background
Crystal Tiger Eye Story

The Story of Tiger Eye

Born amidst instability, tiger eye lives in an in-between state, in the process of moving from one form to another. Its shimmering striations look like strands being pulled in separate directions as the heavier hematite inclusions have begun to separate and fall away, while the lighter mineral content rises up, which if left to fully form, would eventually become jasper.

Thus, tiger eye is a solidified moment of transition, the captured essence of the state of becoming. This is a metaphor for the healing power it carries as it’s able to “separate the clear from the turbid” according to Daoist stone medicine, helping the dust settle in your energetic body, allowing the dense, heavy energy to fall away and the clear, light energy to rise.

This stone may call to you most when you find yourself in a state of instability, of trying to become something, or figuring out how to manifest your ideas into form. When life feels tumultuous or chaotic amidst big changes or upheavals, tiger eye can keep you grounded, clear, and taking steps forward aligned with your higher purpose.

Named for its resemblance to the shimmering eye of a tiger, this stone holds the power, strength, and integrity of its namesake. It awakens the tiger energy within you, the courage, confidence, and will to move forward through your fears or any obstacle that comes your way.

A highly protective stone, worn by ancient Roman soldiers during battle, tiger eye protects your mind, body, and emotions from stagnation and holding onto dense energy, as it clears the auric field, clears the critical thoughts, and strengthens your inner sense of vitality, determination, and stability.

A beautiful tool to use during big transitional periods in life and times when you feel like you’re struggling, tiger eye brings your attention to the perpetual patterns, habits, and self-destructive behaviors going on, so you can make better choices for your personal well-being moving forward and see the struggles as opportunities to become aware of your true purpose and path.

When you need a little added pressure, a catalyst, a push to propel you forward, tiger eye amps up your ability to take initiative in life with boldness and charge forward on the path to your highest calling with ferocious clarity.

Crystal Tiger Eye Property Background

Tiger Eye Healing Properties

Element Earth


Earth is the element of stability, security, safety, and physical presence, and tiger eye helps you ground into all of these qualities within yourself, harnessing your physical power and capability to take aligned action toward your goals and dreams.

It simultaneously stimulates the lower chakras as well as the mind, connecting thought forms and inspiration with the grounded, practical steps you need to take to bring your ideas to life in the real world.

When your life is feeling shaky or unstable, when you’re in the middle of a big transition or growth period, tiger eye can act as a centering force to help you find solid ground within your own body and the present moment, bringing support, strength, and stability to your whole being.

Element Fire


Tiger eye stokes the quick-moving flame of creativity, drive, passion, and life force within you. It holds the fire energy of inspiration and divinity.

It brings clarity and light through the fog and clouds of the mind, burns through the sludge and muck of heavy, dense energies and emotions, and keeps your inner flame burning, bringing determination, confidence, direction, and a strong motivation to act.

When you’re feeling exhausted, lifeless, confused or just need some oomph, tiger eye’s fire energy is invigorating and uplifting, engaging your willpower and intellect, stimulating your desire to succeed, to thrive, and to rise into alignment with your soul’s higher purpose.

Chakra Root


The root is where you find safety and security in your own body, a connection to the physical world and your physical strength, your ability to take action and move forward, and your sense of belonging within yourself and in the world around you.

Tiger eye is a beautiful stone to stoke this root power, grounding you into your body and into the essence of who you are. Its layered formation cuts through the layers of your subconscious down into the root of buried emotions and unconscious wounds, to help you unburden yourself from the shackles of the past and move courageously into a brighter future.

When you feel insecure within yourself or with money, it’s often a root chakra related issue, and tiger eye is a great tool to help you ground into a sense of inner security, break through the old patterns that’ve kept you stuck, and rise into more self-assurance. It’s a stone that reminds you you have the power within to create, do, or become anything you want.

Chakra Solar Plexus

Solar Plexus

This golden crystal is strongly related to the solar plexus chakra and has a strengthening effect on the spleen which lives here. The spleen is the seat of our instinct and bodily intuition, which tiger eye can enhance your connection with, clearing out the static and stagnant energies in the way of you receiving and acting on your own inner guidance.

The spleen is where many unconscious fears are energetically held within our body. Tiger eye can help alleviate these fears by strengthening your confidence and self-esteem, and aligning you with your purpose so you can manifest your deep soul’s desires and accomplish what you’re meant to here on earth.

Tiger eye also spurs digestion, emotionally and physically, breaking up stagnation and sifting through dense energies, helping you digest old wounds and trauma and see them more clearly, separating the gold nuggets of wisdom from the slop of pain.

Chakra Third Eye

Third Eye

An incredible stone to help clear the mind, tiger eye brings balance and grounding to the third eye chakra helping you discern the truest path, the right decision, and the best way forward. It can be used for scrying and activating or developing one’s clairvoyance.

It enhances your intuitive and psychic awareness, heightening your subtle senses like a tiger prowling in the darkness, helping you separate illusions from reality and misaligned beliefs from the truth of who you are. It can help ground and neutralize obsessive or delusional thoughts.

It improves concentration and can even strengthen eyesight, and is soothing for the entire nervous system. It can help you gain clarity around your vision for your life and then, through its connection with the solar plexus chakra, bring that vision into fruition with clear and decisive action.

Energetic Qualities
Energetic Qualities


Tiger eye energy is clear and direct, focused and fast-moving. It’s a stone of the solar ray, enhancing physical and mental energy, vitality, strength, and direction, all those yang qualities within you. It brings encouragement and light during difficult times, stoking your internal power and motivation to always keep moving forward. It also tempers and balances yang energy when it gets extreme, always bringing you back to your center.


Its high iron content helps tiger eye absorb and retain heat, which makes its energy perfect to help fire you up, catalyze you, and energize you when you need it. It can warm you up to new ideas and new perspectives, as well as break up stagnant or blocked energy to get it moving again, reducing inflammation and pain.


As a stone of the in-between states, tiger eye is a beautiful tool for harmonizing disparate energies, moving any imbalances or extremes back towards their center point. Wherever there is inner or outer duality or strife, tiger eye works as a mediating factor to bring conflicting energies back into alignment with one another

Physical Properties
Physical Properties


Tiger eye is shimmering in golden brown layers, and can also be found in deep red tones and dusky blues. It has chatoyancy, reflecting the light like a tiger’s eye. This chatoyant effect, highlighting all its many layers, is also a visual representation of its state of instability, of trying to become, still in the process of being stretched and separated.

Chatoyant crystals are highly self-reflective, allowing you to shed brightness into the dark inner layers of your inner self. Its golden brown coloring reflects its groundedness, pragmatism, and connection with both the earth and the sun, with its golden glints of divine light and wisdom.


Tiger eye is made of silicon dioxide (which is quartz) + iron. The quartz has a very activating, generative, yang effect and the iron relates to the blood and life force energy of the body.

It has a trigonal crystal structure which relates to the element of fire and carries the energy of forward momentum, pushing you to act on your creative impulses and realign with your highest awareness and goals.

It can also help you find or create work that’s aligned with your soul’s purpose so you can feel more fulfilled.

Shadow Work
Shadow Work

Tiger eye helps you initiate the path of self-discovery and get curious about the hidden depths within you. Use it to stay grounded and secure as you work through the layers of buried emotions within, and it’ll help you clearly see the issues that need to be resolved and addressed.

It separates the muddy thoughts, the criticisms and confusion, the things you don’t want to admit or look at, from the light of truth and purpose that resides within you, helping you clarify your intent, walk courageously through your fears, and bust out of old patterns of self-sabotage and unworthiness. Its influence allows you to see struggles as an opportunity to become more conscious of your personal evolution, purpose, and path.

Hold a tiger eye stone up to your forehead, close your eyes, and breathe deeply. Allow the dense and heavy thoughts to settle and separate as new awareness rises, bringing practical solutions and next action steps.

Intuitive Development
Intuitive Development

Tiger eye helps clear the lens of your inner vision, bringing clarity and discernment to the mind and amplifying the voice of your intuition. It’s a beautiful stone to work with to alleviate fears and anxiety around tapping into your intuitive gifts and to keep you grounded while you explore your subconscious and play in the etheric realms.

It offers energetic protection and cleansing to keep your mental energy clear from delusion and illusion as you’re doing spiritual work, and helps you find faith and confidence in your own inner impulses, learning how to trust yourself to discern what’s true for you and what direction to go in.

Tiger eye can be used for scrying, which is the act of seeing into the stone to discern messages, signals, visions, and answers. When placed on the third eye, tiger eye can help you develop your clairvoyance, or clear intuitive vision.

Self Care
Self Care

A great crystal to wear or carry with you daily, just holding tiger eye can help raise your self-esteem and make you feel like you’re enough. It will heighten your awareness and attention throughout the day, helping you see through your fears, patterns, and habits to make better choices for your personal well-being.

Lay with it over your solar plexus, below the notch of your ribs, to spark your confidence, enthusiasm, and endurance. You can also wear it as a bracelet or keep a stone in your pants pocket throughout the day to affect the lower chakras and keep your stamina and motivation up.

You can use a tumbled tiger eye stone or wand to gently massage areas of pain on your body, especially for a headache on your temples. Try placing it on your eyes or cheeks for inflammation or sinus congestion. Massage the cuticles on your fingers or toes with it (containing meridian points) to release emotional baggage.

Care + Cleansing for Tiger Eye

You can cleanse tiger eye under running water once a week or so if you’re wearing it or carrying it with you regularly. You can also use smoke from incense or an herbal smudge for a quick cleansing when you need it.

For a more thorough cleanse, perhaps once monthly, you can leave it out on the earth overnight to be recharged by its natural energetic frequencies and the cosmos above. This will both cleanse and recharge it.

You can also place tiger eye in the sunlight for 3-4 hours to recharge its vital yang energy. Then you can use the warm stones for a massage treatment on yourself afterward.
