May 2017: Tiger’s Eye & Tiger Iron 20% OFF

Save 20% off Tiger’s Eye & Tiger Iron throughout May 2017 in The Shops at Nature’s Art Village!

A beautiful variety of quartz, tiger’s eye starts out as the blue asbestos mineral called crocidolite. Quartz actually replaces crocidolite and assumes its fibrous structure, which gives tiger’s eye its striking chatoyance (gleam). Tiger’s eye’s colors vary from the common yellow/brown (caused by iron oxidation) and blue (the original color of the crocidolite) to red (caused by heat), and green (very rare). Tiger’s eye is mined in South Africa.

Metaphysically, tiger’s eye is believed to help one become more practical, and to eliminate “the blues”. When one becomes too hyperactive, red tiger’s eye helps flush out excess energy so one can rest & sleep.

Tiger iron is found in the Ord Ranges of north Western Australia, near Port Hedland. It is an Archaean banded iron formation consisting of hematite, jasper and tiger’s eye. This is the only location of this age. All other iron formations worldwide are of Proterozoic Age.

Metaphysically, tiger iron is believed to help with cooperation and unity. It is said, like tiger’s eye, to assist in grounding one’s ideas and making them think more practically.

The Shops at Nature’s Art Village have an incredible selection of tiger’s eye and tiger iron beads, jewelry, stones and ornamental statues. Visit Nature’s Art Village on Route 85 in Montville, Connecticut to see our full selection of gemstone beads, jewelry and mineral species!
