About Tiger’s Eye:
The gemstone known as Tiger’s Eye is a form of chalcedony Quartz, but it didn’t start out as Quartz. It began as the fibrous blue mineral called crocidolite and was gradually transformed into Quartz while maintaining its fibrous formations. Tiger’s Eye is called just that to resemble a cat’s eye with its brown base and its golden yellow, light-catching shimmer. Tiger’s Eye comes primarily from South Africa and east Asia.
Tiger’s Eye: The chosen material for His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s own mala. It is folklored as a power stone. Tiger’s Eye has a wonderful reputation for attracting wealth, money, and luck. However, it has powerful spiritual uses as well. The liquid movement of light across the stone makes it an excellent tool for vision or divination work.
Carnelian: Helps balance creativity and mental processes, and increase passion and compassion. In the Feng Shui tradition, orange is associated with creativity, abundance, organization and is “Yang.” This stone is associated with the second chakra and folklored to evoke fertility and inspire passion.
