Tiger Eye Stone as the name suggests is a stone that embodies the spirit and behavior of a Tiger. From the big cat’s patience when hunting for a prey to it’s unwavering focus and perseverance, this stone will help to unleash the tiger within you, thus emboldening you… The Tiger Eye is usually brown in color with several strips of light brown that reflect light, thus creating a flash that is similar to the Tiger’s eye when it is marking and observing it’s prey.
Tiger Eye (or Tigers Eye) is a gemstone which is aptly named due to its cat eye effect; this effect is called chatoyancy. The chatoyancy effect of the stone can only be achieved through proper cutting and polishing. The result is a golden to brownish-red hue and a silky luster. Beautiful! Many believe that it is this unique color that distinguishes the tigers eye. But it is actually its chatoyancy, which plays a dominant role in the meaning of the name.

How To Clean Tiger Eye Stone
Cleaning the Tiger Eye Stone consist of several parts… You’ll need to learn how to maintain the Crystal, cleanse the Crystal and charging the Crystal.I have broken them into a step by step guide below for easier reference.
Maintenance Of The Tiger Eye Stone
The Tiger Eye Crystal is a precious stone that should be stored in a place that helps it to recharge and not diminish its power. Thus, it is advisable not to store it in dark places, like the attic or in boxes as the lack of light will deteriorate their purpose. Instead, keep them on display around your house or wear them as a bracelet or a necklace. Unlike other Crystals, the Tiger Eye Stone is not light sensitive… which makes it an excellent Crystal to flaunt in the open. It’s color does not decompose under Sunlight… However, this does not mean that we don’t treat our Tiger Eye Stone with care… Long exposures to Sunlight might cause the Tiger Eye Crystal to crack due to the immense heat of the Sun.
Cleansing Of The Tiger Eye Stone
There are a couple of ways in which you can cleanse your Tiger Eye Stone and I have documented it here. So if you are keen to learn more, you can check out that blog post. It is important to cleanse our Crystals because Crystals have an energetic memory. When exposed to an environment with negative energy or if the Crystals is being touched by someone else apart from us… It absorbs and holds the negative energy within itself. It is necessary to cleanse this negative energy because the last thing we want is to carry it around and bring negativity into our lives.
Personally, I prefer using the Singing bowl to cleanse my Tiger Eye Stone. I feel that it is an effective and non-invasive way to cleanse Crystals. However, I must say a Singing bowl cost quite a bit. But it is definitely worth the investment especially if you are into any form of energy healing. What I like about it is that it saves me so much time too? I mean, if you have a large Singing Bowl, you can cleanse all your Crystals, bracelets and even necklaces all at once!
Alternatively, if you are on a budget, you could place your Tiger Eye Stone in a bowl of chipped Hematite overnight. When your Tiger Eye Stone is in contact with the chipped Hematite, it will discharge it’s negative energy onto the Hematite resulting in a cleansing process. As Hematite is a self-cleansing Crystal, it will discharge itself on it’s own when left alone.
Charging Of The Tiger Eye Stone
Charging your Crystal is crucial in empowering your Tiger Eye Stone to fulfill it’s purpose. The first step for charging your Tiger Eye Stone is to program your Crystal. You’ll need to speak to it and let it know your intentions. I have seen people program their Crystals in many different ways… But I find this method the best for connecting with your Crystals by affirming your intention. What you should do, is to hold your Tiger Eye Stone with both hands and sit in a quiet corner of a room. You want to be undisturbed during this few minutes…
Close your eyes and speak to your Crystals. There isn’t any script to program your Crystals but what you can do is to say something like…
“Dear Tiger Eye Stone, thank you so much for coming into my life. I know you’ll be a blessing and I want you to bring me faith and confidence in myself. Grant me the ability to stay calm when face with troubles and be persevere in times of hardship. I thank you for everything and with you by my side, I promise to protect your from physical harm.”
Who Should Wear Tiger Eye Stone

It is also for people who want to have more luck and good fortune along. Despite the Tiger Eye emboldening purposes, it is not recommended for those who are faint hearted. It might be overwhelming for those who are naturally very shy and timid or for those who suffer from personality disorders.
How To Use Tiger Eyes for the Best Results
