This Tiger's Eye is unimaginably ancient even by geological standards 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.
Properties of Amethyst
Amethyst is the gemstone variety of quartz, produced by the presence of manganese in clear quartz crystal. Increments of iron within the crystal as it formed vary the color of the amethyst, which ranges from pale lilac to deep purple. Amethyst has been popular with royalty, sages, mystics and magicians for centuries.
“Fine amethysts are featured in the British Crown Jewels and were also a favorite of Catherine the Great and Egyptian royalty,” according to the International Colored Gemstone Association.
“Leonardo Da Vinci wrote that amethyst was able to dissipate evil thoughts and quicken the intelligence,” according to the ICGA website.
“Because amethyst was thought to encourage celibacy and symbolize piety, amethyst was very important in the ornamentation of Catholic and other churches in the Middle Ages. It was, in particular, considered to be the stone of bishops and they still often wear amethyst rings,” continues the ICGA. “In Tibet, amethyst is considered to be sacred to Buddha and rosaries are often fashioned from it.”
Amethyst is said to enhance spirituality, raise the vibrational level of the holder, cleanse the astral, etheric and physical bodies, and produce a peaceful, tranquil state of mind.
Many different traditions agree upon the clearing, cleansing & purifying action of amethyst. It is often used to purify the spiritual body.
Amethyst is classically the stone of sobriety, purity and chastity and would be an excellent stone for those with tendencies toward addictive behavior, or for those spiritual seekers intent upon transformation through the progressive purification of mind, body and aura.
Use an amethyst crystal to channel in the violet ray of Cosmic Consciousness, associated with the crown chakra. Amethyst is also associated with the moon, feminine energy, creativity and intuition. It's very calming and also an excellent tool for communication with spirit guides.
Small amethyst crystals are a great portable stone for energy workers and those who seek personal protection from negative energy.
You can sleep with them under your pillow to stimulate meaningful dreams, to help you remember your dreams, and to protect yourself with a bubble of violet light all night long. Day and night, you can benefit from the unique energies of azurite.
