About Tiger’s Eye:
The gemstone known as Tiger’s Eye is a form of chalcedony Quartz, but it didn’t start out as Quartz. It began as the fibrous blue mineral called crocidolite and was gradually transformed into Quartz while maintaining its fibrous formations. Tiger’s Eye is called just that to resemble a cat’s eye with its brown base and its golden yellow, light-catching shimmer. Tiger’s Eye comes primarily from South Africa and east Asia.
Tiger’s Eye: The chosen material for His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s own mala. It is folklored as a power stone. Tiger’s Eye has a wonderful reputation for attracting wealth, money, and luck. However, it has powerful spiritual uses as well. The liquid movement of light across the stone makes it an excellent tool for vision or divination work.
Citrine: Opens the higher mind to accept joy in one’s life, releasing anger and negative feelings, deep-seated fears, and destructive tendencies. Citrine reduces sensitivity to criticism and inspires creativity and self-expression. It raises self-esteem, and by letting go of the past, allows one to move forward optimistically to enjoy new experiences.
