Tiger eye is typically a dark golden brown color with reflective bands of light dancing on the surface that create a magical display. It's a variety of quartz that is chatoyant because of parallel intergrowth of quartz crystals and altered amphibole fibers that mostly turn to limonite.
Metaphysically, tiger eye can be used to balance pessimistic behavior and it dissolves negative energy and thought patterns. This "all-seeing stone" is thought to allow perspective on any situation and it can help gently attune the Third Eye. It is said to enhance psychic abilities, such as clairvoyance. It has also been thought to enhance wealth and vitality.
