Tiger's eye has the quality of what is termed chatoyancy, which means as the stone is turned it reflects light in glorious iridescent ways on its surface. It can be used as a tool to rebalance the body, especially during healing or meditative work, and some people use it to aid psychic work.

In addition to carrying the generic properties of Tiger's Eye, Golden Tiger's Eye assists in paying attention to detail, warns against over-complacency and danger, and encourages you to take action from a place of reason rather than emotion. It is excellent for examinations and important meetings. This stone is said to confer invisibility when you are under psychic attack. It draws negative energy from the solar plexus and returns it to its source. Place Golden Tiger's Eye in your car to protect against accidents. It should be worn for short periods of time.

Tiger's eye helps us to know that new experiences and more enjoyable situations are only as far away as we believe them to be. This stone can be held when seeking a calm influence in our life or when our thoughts are fragmented and we need focus. It also can help heal issues of self-worth. In times of peace, clarity or grace it may help us to remain in the present and not worry about how long the good feelings will last.

A stone of protection, Tiger Eye may also bring good luck to the wearer. It has the power to focus the mind, promoting mental clarity, assisting us to resolve problems objectively and unclouded by emotions. Particularly useful for healing psychosomatic illnesses, dispelling fear and anxiety. Useful for recognising one's own needs in relation to the needs of others. Balancing yin-yang and energising the emotional body, Tiger Eye stabilises mood swings, imbues us with willpower, purpose, courage and self-confidence, and releases tension.
