Tiger’s Eye is a chatoyant gemstone that is gold to red-brown in color and contains a silky luster. In ancient times, Roman soldiers wore the gemstone carved with lions or hawks which provided them with protection during battles. Rediscovered in South Africa in the early 1800s, Tiger’s Eye has continued to be worn with a variety of Jewelry styles.
Today, Tiger’s Eye is mined in South Africa, Australia, Burma, Canada, India, Namibia, and the United States. Tiger’s Eye has remained as one of the most popular golden brown gemstones and some believe that the golden hue of the stone, resembling a cat’s eye, can help to calm the mind.
