Tiger’s Eye comes in a variety of colors; golden brown, red, & blue [aka: Hawks Eye]. Due to its appearance it is said to be an all seeing eye, and is used for insight.

Tiger’s eye is primarily a stone of the mind. It is used to focus the mind, consolidates one’s thoughts, and provides clarity; so that a person can think more clearly. It also makes one aware of one’s own needs. The wearer will be able to see clearly what is needed for them to act with confidence and without illusion.
A stone of protection, the Tiger’s eye is said to protect a person from evil, negativity, and is a psychic protector. It provides confidence and bravery. Legends say that Roman soldiers would wear engraved stones into battle to enhance courage in battle and protect from evil.
