About Tiger's Eye
Tiger’s Eye has long been associated with insight, willpower and courage. In Ancient Egypt Tiger’s Eye was used to sculpt the eyes of deities in statues to express divine vision and was associated with the sun God Ra. It was also carried by Roman soldiers to deflect weapons and be brave in battle.
The tiger has always been held as a symbol of courage, integrity and the right use of power and Tiger’s Eye still carries that meaning to this day.
