Tiger eye cabachones.
It has been highly regarded throughout history as a stone of prosperity and good fortune, protecting one’s resources and reflecting back malice or threats from others.
Tiger’s Eye is a most ancient talisman, mysterious and powerful, revered and feared – an “all-seeing all-knowing eye,” thought to grant a wearer the ability to observe everything, even through closed doors.
It was chosen by the Egyptians for the eyes in their deity statues to express divine vision, and was believed to provide the protection of the sun and earth combined, of Ra, the sun god and Geb, god of the growing land.
Linked to the magical tiger, the king of beasts in Eastern mythology, Tiger’s Eye portrayed courage, integrity and right use of power. Roman soldiers carried it to deflect weapons and to be brave in battle.
Historically esteemed as the most powerful talisman of abundance and protection against the evil eye, it also allowed one to become “invisible,” helping one see in the dark and negotiate shadowy places with ease and safety. It is considered particularly beneficial for children, accelerating the healing of illness, enhancing concentration for study, and giving them a sense of security and courage.
