Tiger’s Eye gemstone is a form of quartz, most of them found in Zimbabwe and Southern Africa. The quartz group contains a greater variety than any other group and is itself divided into three sub-groups. Tiger’s eye and Falcon’s eye belong to the Massive Group. Colours range from pale gold through brown to red and blue. It has a silky lustre and beautiful light-catching qualities. The stone itself is common fibrous blue asbestos permeated by quartz.
This powerful stone aids harmony and balance, and helps you to release fear and anxiety. It is believed that the gemstone will help in physically balancing your body and help heal broken bones.
This golden brown stone is a Capricorn birthstone as well as a Gemini birthstone.

So, is my birthstone 🙂 I am a Gemini
I think we have quite a choice of birthstones now. Traditionally you only had one.
I am quite fond of Tiger’s Eye. It is a lovely stone!
It is and I think I need to carry these around more as I am in dire need of some harmony and balance!
Good plan, I should too. I wonder if it will help me with my cold. I feel like death.
I used to have a Tiger’s Eye ring, on a silver mount, in the early 1970s. It must still be around, but don’t ask me where.
Regards as always, Pete. x
Sounds nice. Perhaps you should look for it 🙂
I’ve never heard of Falcon’s Eye, Jude, but I like your style. 🙂 This sounds a useful gem to have around.
Indeed Jo. Harmony and balance needed right now!
Now you have planted the ‘Rocky’ theme tune and an image of Sylvester Stallone’s muscles, right in my brain, and it’s not necessarily a good thing. 😀
Haha… so sorry Sylvia 😉
I bet you are. 😅
I love that gemstone its one of my favourites
It’s a pretty one.
Yes really is a lovely stone…
Good choice for the theme. I like this stone – I remember it from my younger days, but I feel I don’t see it around as much as I used to.
I have plenty of eye photos, but wanted to do something different 😀
I think I might be struggling with eye photos – but I might surprise myself when I start looking! 🙂
It helps heal broken bones? Really? Wow. I’ve actually got some somewhere. [MOSY

Yup! Wear around the wrist or keep one in your pocket – apparently 🙂
Fortunately I own a bracelet with Tiger’s Eye so it is currently on my left wrist. So I can expect to go back to rowing next week, right? 😉
Well, er, maybe leave it a little longer…
Great take on the challenge Jude. I have a necklace with Tiger’s Eye stones. With all those benefits I should wear it more often.
You should – although I believe it is better worn around the wrist.
Jude it almost looks like wood to me with the grains through it.
