Tiger’s eye is an easily obtained banded crystal. It is generally yellow-brown to golden brown in colour, but there are several other colour varieties. This is an earthy stone that is also connected to the energy of the sun, thus combining the two. It is associated with the solar plexus and sacral chakras, the elements of earth and fire and the zodiac signs, Capricorn and Leo.

Tiger’s eye is a type of macrocrystalline quartz (also known as fibrous quartz) that forms when quartz crystals become embedded within crocidolite.
