Tigers Eye is a beautiful form of chatoyant chalcedony that is a pseudomorph crocidolite. This gives the stone the beautiful bands of gold and orange that we know so well. It is usually polished to show off the beautiful colors. Tigers eye is related to pietersite and tiger iron (which also has hematite and red jasper). It balances your energy by stimulating you when exhausted, or helping you to slow down when you're over stimulated. Its energy is very grounding and protective.
