Tigers eye is a type of quartz which has a golden yellow colour, often with a silky lustre. It is composed of crocidolite which is a fibrous blue asbestos, and quartz. Tigers eye is found in a range of different locations, such as South Africa, India, Burma and the USA. The ancient Egyptians believed that tigers eye could ward off the evil eye, and it was also used for protection and luck in ancient Greece. In the Middle Ages, it was thought to be useful for improving vision, and for protection against the plague. Tigers eye is a popular gemstone and is used in jewellery, as well as being carved into sculptures. It is said to have metaphysical properties, such as promoting courage and clarity of thought. The stone is believed to help people to focus on the task at hand, while also helping to balance the emotions. Geologists have studied the chemical composition of tigers eye and its formation in various locations. Its chemical composition makes it susceptible to damage from heat and acid, so it should be handled with care.
