For all you August babies, keep on reading as we share some of our favourite things about Tiger’s Eye, including our top picks from our Tiger’s Eye gemstone collection. They’ll make for a perfect gift, or even a treat for yourself!
What is Tiger’s Eye?
Tiger’s Eye is an incredible gemstone, both in appearance with its gorgeous stripes of brown and gold, and the strength it provides from its namesake - offering you the courage of a tiger!
In fact, traditionally it was said that Tiger’s Eye was carried as a protective shield against evils, warding off curses and keeping the wearer safe.
What are the benefits of this gemstone?
Not only does it provide the wearer with a tiger’s courage, but this stone is said to offer resilience in overwhelming situations. It can help with providing clarity and helping to resolve any little problems objectively.
Protective properties aside, this gemstone can give you willpower, inner strength and confidence, particularly if you’re looking to achieve some personal goals! If you’re after a boost of good fortune, this is a great stone to consider.
