Red Tiger Eye Meaning and Healing Properties

Red Tiger Eye is the rare, red variety of Tiger Eye. Tiger Eye is commonly a yellow/brown color that will transform into a reddish color when exposed to high temperatures. Tiger Eye is the trade name for a variety of Quartz that displays a unique optical effect known as chatoyancy (or cat's eye effect) when a polished stone is moved back and forth under light. Tiger's Eye was discovered by French traveller and ornithologist Francois Levaillant in 1784. In ancient Rome, Red Tiger Eye was used by soldiers to increase strength, stamina, overcome fear and bring protection. In ancient Egypt, it was associated with the sun god Ra and used as eyes in statues of their deities. Ancient Egyptians also used Red Tiger Eye in protection amulets and talismans. Red Tiger Eye was also used by Native American tribes for grounding and in protection amulets.

Tiger Eye forms when water containing the minerals necessary to make both Quartz and Crocidolite seep into the crack. Quartz begins to grow on the crack surface, while Crocidolite fibers begin to grow from pieces of Crocidolite that are on the crack surface. The crack area fills with new material and then the rock cracks again, typically in a sliding motion along the existing crack surface because it is weaker than other areas. The new crack fills the same way, but the crocidolite fiber is slightly offset because of the crack shear. This process forms bands of Quartz with diagonal, discontinuous crocidolite fibers causing its chatoyancy. After some of the iron in the Crocidolite oxidizes, the material becomes the rich shades of brown, golden and red. The asbestos in Tiger Eye is not hazardous because the fibers are completely replaced by Quartz and iron oxides. Red Tiger’s Eye is primarily found in South Africa, in the Northern Cape Province. It is also found in other parts of the globe including Australia, Brazil, India, and the United States.

Red Tiger Eye helps you connect with and appreciate your body to experience pleasure and passion. It enhances confidence, physical vitality, libido and motivation. Red Tiger Eye helps you find the strength and stamina to accomplish your goals. It increases your body's energy and metabolism to aid in weight loss.
