Blogging from A to Z Challenge - T is for Tiger's Eye

Welcome back to the Blogging from A to Z Challenge 2016!  This will be interesting and fun trying to interpret healing crystals and gemstones from Amethyst to Zircon with watercolors and create a neat sketchbook. 

T is for Tiger's Eye

Tiger's Eye symbolizes unity and is associated with the sign of Virgo.  It helps you to concentrate and even get over bronchitis when placed upon the navel.  Those who suffer from asthma, migraines and headaches will also benefit from carrying this stone.   The striping effects are created by crystalizing directional hornblende fibers.

I read a book by Judy Blume, Tiger Eyes (I think), a looooong time ago, and that was the first time I heard of this stone (which wasn't all that central to the story, if I recall correctly)—and, since then, I've always wondered what it looked like. Awesome properties, too!

Happy A2Z day off tomorrow :)

Thank you for stopping by! I, too, love Tiger's Eye and still have a very cool ring with the stripes going diagonally and the sterling silver setting in the opposite direction. A fascinating stone!
