Wonderworks Gemstone of the Week: Tiger’s Eye
This week’s stone has an interesting formation process: Tiger’s eye begins as the fibrous mineral croicidolite, which clear quartz fuses with, resulting in either Hawk’s eye or tiger’s eye, depending on other trace minerals.
In terms of metaphysical properties, this is a stone of physical vitality and stamina. It activates the lower chakras, helping us maintain physical energy and overcome fatigue and discouragement. It keeps us grounded and centered, and helps one move past seeing the world in dualities and extremes. It’s a ‘slow and steady’ stone, making it useful for those who exert too much energy and run out quickly, or those who have difficulty keeping their motivation up.
In the physical body, tiger’s eye works to heal stress-related disorders, and to strengthen the eyes. it supports physical vitality and facilitates metabolism and the endocrine system.
