Eye of the tiger

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.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. 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.
