Mineralogical and Metaphysical Properties of Tiger's Eye
Tiger's Eye contains quartz silica, chrysotile and Serpentine. This Tiger's Eye Bowl is made from material approximately one billion years old, and comes from India. This unique collector's item exhibits a characteristic brilliant watery reflection on its surface as light changes or one's point of view shifts. This is known to gemologists as "chatoyancy".
Coined from the French "chat oeil," meaning "cat's eye," chatoyancy occurs when light strikes fibrous material inside the stone, as in tiger eye quartz, or when light reflects from bands of fibrous inclusions or cavities within the stone, as in cat's eye chrysoberyl.
"The effect can be likened to the sheen off a spool of silk; the mobile, wavering reflection always being perpendicular to the direction of the fibres," according to the Wikipedia.
Tiger's Eye, or Magnesium Iron Silicate Hydroxide, forms when silica quartz invades a serpentine or chrysotile formation, in a mineral deposit, over long periods of time, forming bands of long fibrous inclusions which create the characteristic shiny, highly reflective, striated surface that makes this gemstone a favorite of jewelers and mineral collectors.
Serpentine has been used by Lightworkers and crystal healers and meditators to facilitate the awakening of Kundalini energy, and to connect the heart chakra, associated with the color green, and the crown chakra, associated with the color gold.
Meditators can place this Tiger's Eye Bowl on their altar, where it makes a striking centerpiece for offerings to the Divine, and use their intent to direct the energies of the Tiger's Eye to their heart and especially to their crown chakra, where the gemstone will facilitate the rising of the Universal Life Force Energy from the base of the spine to the top of the head.
We find that Tiger's Eye assists us in grounding spiritual energy & manifesting it in the world in our daily lives.
This gemstone bowl has been cleaned with Universal Life Force Energy, and given an energy attunement using Reiki, a Japanese technique of energy healing, so it will continue to receive and transmit Universal Life Force Energy direct from the Source of Creation. It has also cleaned and charged with the natural energy of sunlight. It is ready for you to program according to your own needs and desires.
We trust you will use this powerful gemstone bowl with loving wisdom and respect its long journey in the Earth that has lasted for many long historical cycles. This crystal is a powerful tool, a love-gift from the Divine Mother.
