Tiger eye protects the person who wears it, especially during long journeys. It also enhances the feelings of security and self-respect. Tigers eye is an excellent stone for increasing the power of personal will. It helps us acquire abundance and wealth and enhances the stability and balance that lead to maintaining the acquired wealth. This stone helps us fight the greed and misuse of power. If you still haven't decided on
a nice piece of tiger's eye - here is our review on purchasing tiger eye stones and jewelry.
The color of the tigers eye is reach green combined with earthly brown and golden. It has unique silky golden glow in different shades.
The notable occurrences are in South Africa and Western Australia.
Roman soldiers wore tigers eye in battle for protection. During that time, this stone was thought to bring clarity and deep insight about the current situation, instantly, here and now, therefore enabling the soldiers to see the truth at the batlefield clearly without deception.
Tiger eye points toward practicality and increases the presence of spirit. It also increases concentration, balances the jin and jang energy as well as the left and right brain hemisphere. This stone supports the soul and gives it a sense of security. It is considered to be a guarding stone of proper grounding. Tigers eye enhances the power of will and brings prosperity, very often in the most direct way - in form of material values. It can help in seeing things as they really are, without any illusions. Of the seven chakras, tigers eye is especially fitted to strengthening the solar plexus chakra, so that the sense of personal ability and power is maintained and shifted toward higher level.
Tigers eye irradiates gentle, soft vibrations that promote peace and calm, even in the times of great changes and disturbances. It is especially suited for meditation where it increases courage, determination, alertness, patience, brings positive energy and relives depression. It can promote unity, self-integration and autonomy; as well as enhance life energy by controlling the sexual and emotional energy
In human terms, the qualities of patience and right timing are related to the ability of obtaining material objects or other non-material qualities that we want our life to be filled with. The golden color represents higher ideas and spiritual values, while the brown color relates to the manifestation of energies on the earth plane. Thus, tigers eye helps in manifestation of spiritual ideas on the physical plane. Also, it increases the self-confidence, and reassures our own ability to realize our dreams. In meditation this stone is most frequently used when placed on the navel center - Manipura chakra, whose colors are golden and yellow. By staring into this stone, we are able to reach insights of both practical and spiritual nature. Its message can be sometimes interpreted as follwos: "The physical level is a playground where our spirit can materialize its tendencies with joy and ease".
Advice: If, after thorough preparation for meditation, you put your dragons eye against the Muladhara chakra and your tigers eye against the Maniupra chakra, whereas your falcons eye is positioned on the Ajna energy center, the least you can achieve are deep insights at spiritual level.
In the self-healing crystal therapy applications, tigers eye lowers high blood pressure and helps with heart problems. It is also of help with the other organs and bodily systems, such as: the throat, liver, bladder, kidneys, spleen and especially with the colon. Tigers eye helps with psoriasis and eye problems, it strengthens the reproductive system, and helps heal bone fractures and wounds. It is a very suitable stone for those who are weak or ill as it increases the level of life energy.
Tiger's eye should be discharged every 15 days under the flow of luke-warm water. It should be charged by exposing to sunlight, together with some rock crystals. Necklaces and bracelets made out of tigers eye can be left overnight together with hematite, at least once a month.

A friend of mine made me a ring with a tiger eye stone. I hope that it will protect me and help me feel calmer.
Sutet Nerrah says:
I bought a obelisk shaped tigers-eye stone and put it in my pocket and my energy went through the roof, that was powerful my spirit asked for it and I
gave it just want it wanted. This is a powerful stone reminding us this golden is inside us not on the outside. Peace and blessings
Thanks Sutet Nerrah for sharing your spiritual insights regarding the power of the golden tigers eye. How very true what you say about the golden light. Many blessings to you too!
Shall I wear Tiger Eyes stone 24 hrs. Are there any risctriction like some of the stones have for the wearer. Please clarify this to me. Thank you.
There is really no such restriction when it comes to wearing Tiger's eye or Tiger's eye jewelry. You can wear it as much as you like.
Thank you very much for clearing my doubt.
I have one experience to share with you guys. Recently my mother have eye problem. Her one of the eyes reddish and a lot of water dripping from her eyes. She quiet often went to visit doctor for eyes check up. Doctor gave some drop for her but not too effective.I told her to wear my Tiger eyes stone.She wore it. The next day I saw the miracle, no more water dripping from her eye side.Ok I will update you guys after she go for eyes check up in 3 month time. Bye
That's great, Kumar. Thanks for sharing your experiences with us.
We are building our new house and i have asked the tiler to place my tiger eye stone under the tile before the front door, is this a good idea? Thanks
I don't see how that can be a bad idea. In essence, it is a form of magic, but then, everything we do in our lives is a form of magic.
Dear Team at Sunnyray
It would be great if you could suggest on the below:
1. What finger and in which hand should the Tiger's eye be worn?
2. Which metal should the ring be made in?
3. Which day of the week at what time should the ring be worn?
4. Can this be worn as a pendant in a necklace?
Thank you so much
If we have to be so specific, we would suggest the following:
1. The index finger of your left hand.
2. Gold would be the preferred metal of Tiger's eye.
3. Friday would be the day of the week suitable for wearing the ring.
4. If you want to wear it as a pendant, make sure that the chain is long enough, so that the stone itself is positioned close to the solar plexus chakra, where it
has the greatest impact.
Otherwise, it is not absolutely necessary to follow these guidelines in order for the Tiger's eye stone to be effective. Putting it close to one's aura should be enough.
Thanks for your very interesting question.
I have prayer beads made with tiger's eye. They are joined by rope. It would probably not be great to soak the rope and tiger's eye since this might affect the rope.
How can I discharge the tigers eye without using water ?
I would suggest using incense smoke (smudging) as an alternative method of cleansing/discharging. Or you can put your tiger's eye prayer beads on top of several cleansed rock crystals or rock crystal
cluster and leave them there overnight.
Recently, I have had some very profound dreams, which I have see them unfold into real life.
I just woke up from a nap where I dreamt about a tiger eye ring. I did a web search to discover this site. I don't have a tiger eye ring. However, I had a friend
(I was really close to) who had a tiger eye ring but have seen him in 10 years. I am curious to what this dream means. Any ideas?
It could very well be that you are about to meet your friend. However, only you can decipher the real meanings of your dreams and what
exactly your dream symbols are trying to convey. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and let us know about the symbolism of the tiger eye ring once you have found out about it.
I would think that in a ring, a tigers eye should be worn on the right hand as it is a masculine stone. I agree that gold would be the best metal. Just wondering why you
would put it on the left hand as that is the feminine or receptive side and the right is the masculine or projective side?
In general you are right. However, in this case we want to use Tiger's eye to improve the feminine receptive side. We should always try to perfectly balance both sides of our
Can I keep it in my wallet? I'm wearing cats eye and red coral rings... Are there any restrictions keeping tiger eye stone with me when im wearing other stones???
I see no problem there. As long as you feel comfortable and Okay, you can mix tiger's eye with other stones any way you like. If you wear it in your wallet, it might even help
you improve your financial situation.
Is it ok to wear the tiger eye as a bracelet? In what side of the wrist I should wear it's right or left. Thank you !!!!
I don't see why you shouldn't wear it as a bracelet. In general, both sides are OK, and it really comes down to what aspects of your personality you want to emphasize (see the discussion above). I
tend to wear tiger's eye jewelry on the left side.
I have a tiger eye. Can I wear it in silver? And I'm a librian so wearing it in right hand will help, if yes which finger.
Tiger's eye loves gold, but silver will be also quite Okay. As a Libra, you might consider tourmaline which is one of the most influential stones for this zodiac sign.
My date of birth is 01.07.1976. My rashi is cancer. Can I wear tiger eye, in which finger, and how much time will take to give result?
Can this stone help to improve the financial area, or which are its effects in life?
You can say that tiger's eye helps improve the financial side. If you want to use Tiger's eye as birthstone, you will see that different birthstone lists have different
associations of crystals and stones and often very different interpretations thereof. Vedic astrology, for example, is one of them. Our understanding is that the best stones for Cancer is Aventurine, whereas Tiger's eye
is more suitable for people born in the astrological sign of Gemini. You can find this and much more in the excellent "Mystical Birthstones" ebook here.
If the person wears red collar don’t wear daimond, blue sapphire and emerald.
I have just started wearing the tiget eye bracelet.
I wore it on my left hand but when I shifted it to my right hand, I felt more in control of my emotions, more at peace. Currently I am going through a lot of emotional
turmoil and today when I wore it on my right hand, I am feeling more in control of my emotions.
Can you tell me normally for a lady, on which hand we should normally wear it?
Many thanks for your answer
Minakshi, this is indeed very natural and understandable.
As already indicated in the comments above, your left hand represents your feminine or receptive side. When switching to your right hand, you are putting more emphasis on your
masculine or assertive side, so you can control your emotions more easily. You are now proactive, instead of just passive and receptive.
As a matter of fact, it is quite normal and, I would say, desirable to always try to balance and harmonize both sides of your being.
Thank you very much for your answer. So I guess from time to time, I will have to wear it on my left hand as well?
Do you have an idea over which time span? Meaning every 2 days or weeks?
You can switch the bracelet if you like, say, on a weekly basis, but there are no fixed rules - this is very individual. The alternative would be to
put an additional (rose quartz or moonstone - yin energy) bracelet on your left hand to balance the energy of the tiger’s eye on the right hand.
Thank you very much for your precious replies. This morning when I woke up, I just felt like to move it to my left hand. So far...it’s been as
per my mood or simply when I wear it on a particular wrist I feel more appeased, so I leave it there!
Thank you for your help :)
Best of luck and keep it up :)
Modem Satyanarayana says:
My Zodiac sign is Gemini. I want to wear Tigers eye stone in silver ring. Suggest to which hand and which finger I should wear the ring.
Please check the discusion above - in fact, there are no strict rules here. You will get Tiger’s eye beneficial energy regardless of the
exact location of the ring.
Hi Sunny, I just happen to search on stone Tiger eye and came on your website.
Someone advice me to wear this stone as per her I am very much prone to negative eye/ energies.
1. Will wearing Tiger Eye stop all negative energies coming to me?
2. I'm thinking of wearing it as locket made in silver but will wear in gold chain. Is this FINE?
Or should I wear bracelet?
I would appreciate your advice.
1. Yes it will.
2. It does not matter much how you wear it, as long as you have it nearby.
Yes it is a very good website for stones and there effected and benifits. Thanks!
I am wearing tigers eye bracelet. I have a small crystal named smoky quartz placed in my living room. I was thinking of geting black Tourmaline as I read it protect home from all negative energies from home.
Can I keep all the three stones???
Yes, you can freely keep all of them.
rita west says:
Hello, I’ve just started to wear a tiger eye necklace, and I have also stopped loosing the plot so quickly too. I now look at both
prospectives, which helps me to feel more balanced.
That’s great that you find tiger’s eye so helpful and useful.
My zodiac sign is Capricorn.
Am wearing a blue sapphire,a diamond & a emerald.
Can i wear a tiger's eye along with the other stones for protection against evil forces ???
please let me know
PrI, the best match with the stones you mentioned would be Falcon’s eye - a variation of Tiger’s eye. It will perform the desired function just as well as Tiger’s eye.
Zamin ali says:
Can I wear the green tiger eye?
Hi Zamin ali,
Why wouldn't you wear it?
Aashutosh Sharma says:
Hi I have been using tigers eye since the year 2001, but since then I have never been stable in my job life. It always went away with a span of few months so I
wonder if it is because of tigers eye or its due to my own capabilities.
If we exclude the personal and collective karmic influences, what happens to us in our lives is always a result of our own capabilities, tendencies, desires and beliefs. Even
if we take our karma into account, it is currently here for us because of our past action. In view of this, crystals and gemstones can only be auxiliary tools, never the main
cause of our possible successes or failures.
Is there any bad luck associated with this stone? I just got a bracelet with the stones and experienced some negativity in public that usually I don't come across. Or was it more of existing the truth to me?
Perhaps I should cleanse the stone with water?
Yes, cleansing it with water is always a good idea. No gemstone is bad luck or negative by itself. It can happen, however, that some negative vibrations are store within the stone, so
always make sure that you have cleansed your stone thoroughly.
I had wear tiger's eye in a pendant for 7-9 months. But for no reasons, somehow i have removed the pendant/chain and kept aside since 2 months. I want to know if I could start wearing the same pendant again? I face lots of trouble due to my influential personality. I mean, office/surrounding people stay all time jealous for absolute NO reasons. Is my decision perfect of wearing a tiger's eye? Please provide your valuable suggestions.
You could try wearing your tiger’s eye pendant again and see what happens, if the jealousy that people around you display gets reduced or not.
I just got a tigers eye ring is silver tone . My rahi is capricorn . What hand and finger should i wear it ?
I would wear it on the right hand. The choice of finger for your ring would depend on the qualities you want to emphasize.
Michael McGrath says:
I am born in September 22
and my vedic starsign is capricorn and am currently wearing a tiger eye bracelet.
Could you please advise if I am able to wear a green sappire ring with this bracelet?
I don’t see any reason why you shouldn’t. In any case, my advice is to monitor the inner state of your being for a couple of days after putting your green sapphire ring on in order
to see how it affects your moods, thoughts, feelings, etc.
I am wearing tigers eye ring in silver,since the last 5yrs.. it has helped me in staying calm but as you said it is for energy and concentration, i did not feel any improvement
in these two reagarding..please help me my DOB is 04.02.1991 and i am wearing it in my right hand ring finger..i want to see the change in me..please help.
To improve your concentration and energy is a worthy goal. It takes time to improve both. Therefore you shouldn’t rely on your tigers eye only - you have to make
a conscous effort yourself. The stones are just accessories. They can be helpful, but we all need to be conscious and active in our personal development in order to
see a substantial progress.
Litte tiger: new bracelet says:
I just bought a tiger eye bracelet and it is so pretty. The lady said if I was so attracted to the bracelet and liked it so much that she said it was ment to be mine so
I got a $20 for only $10. She said the bracelet enter me too.
I believe a lot of crystal lovers have similar experiences like what you just described, Little tiger. I wish you a lot of fun with your tiger’s eye bracelet.
I am gemini. Can I wear tiger eye in my first (index) finger.
These days we receive a lot of questions similar to yours. Therefore we have decided to write an article covering the basic phylosphy and metaphysics behind this
interesting association of fingers, planetary energies and horoscope signs. So, stay tuned.
Can I wear rose quartz and tiger eye bracelets together?
I'm wearing now both in right hand..
I would put the Rose quartz bracelet on the left hand while keeping the tiger's eye on the right.
I just have tiger's eye bracelet combined with dzi stone.
I'm virgo and was born on aug 30, 1976.
I wear it on my right hand. The bracelet have 19 beads of tiger eye and 1 dzi beads with 9 eye.
Can you explain that bracelet to me?
How to cleanse the bracelet for it to always be a good tool?
Thank you very much
I really have no idea what dzi stone is. Can you clarify it to me what kind of stone that is?
Dzi stone is tibetan stone are made from agate stone.
Hello sunny ray! Recently I have bought a tigerstone pendant and an amethyst pendant. I want to wear both of them. Can I put both of them at the same time around my neck?
@Suryanto: One of the meanings of this bracelet could be help in material accomplishments, in which
case you should wear it on your right hand, as you already do. The best way to cleanse it is
using already cleansed rock crystal (quartz) stones in bulk and keep your bracelet among those quartz stones for up to 24 hours.
@Dipesh: Yes you can. There is nothing wrong with wearing tiger’s eye and amethyst at the same time.
Is the more expensive the stone the better one that will suit our purposes? I have seen Tiger'e eyes advertised for as much as $79.00. I bought a cheaper one. Should I have
bought one that is more expensive? Will it work better?
It has nothing to do with the price. You should have bought the stone that felt good in your hands, the one you had a good intuitive contact with.
Hello,I'm wearing the tiger eye and just wondering will the stone somehow change it's colour like jades? And if it does what does it means? Thank You.
I have a friend who works a dangerous job and I want to give him a tigers eye to help him stay smart on the job and be safe. he doesn't believe much in spirituality, but do you think if I charge the stone with my own goal for it if it'll respond ..even if he doesn't believe?
Hi Ayu. It has never happened to our tiger's eye stones, so we have no idea what the reason for the color change could be.
You can do that and it should work, even though it would be much better if your friend did believe in spirituality.
I was born on oct 19, 1966. My friend gifted me a tiger eye bracelet. How do I cleanse it before wearing? I'm planning to have my husband wear it instead.
He was born on jan 18,1957. Thank you.
One way you can cleanse your tiger's eye bracelet using running water. If there are some metal parts that shouldn't be exposed to water, then, an alternative method
that works well is using incense smudge sticks.
So my mom wanted me to find out what this tiger's eye does and so I want to ask a question.
How do I use tiger eye for financial success?
I am a Gemini. I found a tigers eye stone when I went hiking and so I kept it with me in my house. Do you think i should wear it? If so then I have to drill a hole through it
and I think it may break or damage the stone. So i don't know what to do.
@Nicole: You program it with your intended purpose and wear it always with you.
@Smita: Yes, you are right. Drilling a hole through your tiger's eye stone on your own is not the best idea. There are spiral spring cages you can purchase that will enable
you to wear your stones without the need of drilling them.
friend's i have a tiger stone
please give me info....
about this stone...
Thank you sunnyray that you helped. I have cleansed my stone and I always keep it in my pocket.
I recently got a tiger eye and it was carved in a way so as a bracelet can be made with it (a slight curve).
Unfortunately, it slipped from my hand and broke into two pieces. My question is that can i use it after gluing the two pieces together?
Would it have any effect on the properties of stone?
I don't see why you couldn't use it after gluing, provided that the appearance is okay.
Can I make my tiger eye in a silver ring? Plz answer me.. And how can I do to connect with my tiger eye? Or I can wear without do any thing?
yes you can make it in a silver ring, but in order to connect with your tiger's eye on a deeper level, you would have to program it.
How can I know if the one I buy is the original tiger's eye and the imitation/fake?
please I want to know...
Tiger's eye is not a rare mineral, nor is it a valuable one, so I doubt anyone will go to great lengths to falsify it.
My guess is that you would be able to select the real thing just by appearance.
Victor Bermudez says:
Wow great insight on Tiger's Eye stone which I was looking for. I have a question someone has cursed me with bad luck and its getting worse by the second.
I'm stuck! I talked to a psychic and she told me to wear the stone next to my heart that way the negetive energy is removed. If I wear the stone as a necklace will
the curse leave me alone? Thank you.
Sir, what is the benefits of wearing tyger eye and which day it can be wear? It is recommended to me for the purpose of study. My date of birth is 8-9-1990.
Hi, my rashi is CANCER WITH ASLESA NAKSHETRA, IS TIGER STONE SUITABLE TO ME...

This was super helpful to me. I just recieved some Tiger eyes from a friend. I just started getting into all of this crystal and stone stuff a few weeks ago, so i am kinda new to all of this,but i gettin it. This site really did help me out in understanding some things and the comments did too.
As i hold them in my hand, i can feel their energy. Just that alone makes my day better. It's so awsome! I LOVE IT!!! Can't wait to start workin with them in
depth now that I understand more about them.
I have the tigers eye stone and I am experiencing an almost financial increase...ex. when money comes in, it is immediately going right back out. Should I charge in Sun
first then cleanse with water or vice versa.
Thank you sunnyray for ur answer, so if I want to cleanse my tiger eye I just clean with running water only? Or there is the some thing to do before
wearing it for the first time? And I have emerald earing - how can I provide negative energies for the first time? I need ur help please.
What are the healing properties of Green Tiger Eye? I have recently brought a bracelet. Haven't seen Green Tiger Eye before.
I just bought two strands of what is called African Roar Tiger Eye. There is no chatoyance in these beads. Is this a normal occurance?
I don't think that chatoyance should be absent from any tiger's eye.
I am very thankful to you for such a useful blog.
I want to know if we can wear some other stones like gomed along with tiger eye.

My zodiac sign is Cancer and I would like to manifest good fortune.
Thank you in advance.
Yesterday I was out shopping around at one of my favorite stores, World Market. I was glancing over the jewelry they have there and they had two necklaces I got. A black obsidian and another tiger eyes necklace. Both cut into a Native American arrow head shape and polished to shine. But they were both real stones, hanging on copper/gold 28 inch thin chain necklaces. They were only $9.99 a piece so I got both of them. They hang down right above my sacral chakra. I love my two new necklaces. <3
My mom passed away a little over a week ago. As a child my mom carried around this stone. I did not know she still had it until I had to go through everything. I am a solider
and serving around the world, I now carry it with me as she did.
