Its name refers to its resemblance to a tiger eye.  Because of the brown, earthen, colour of the stone and its ability to shimmer, Roman soldiers looked at the stone as a combination of the Earth and the Sun.  Fusing these two together in one stone, they looked at it as a stone that would make soldiers braver in battle.  As it looked like an eye, they believed it made soldiers all seeing.

Ancient Egyptians, also believing it had Blue-Tiger's-Eye-Crystal-Skull-Pendant-03connections to the sun, believed it provided the wearer with luck and protection.  They would use it in adornments made for the dead, to help protect them on their journey to the afterlife. In Ceylon, it was used in charms to ward off evil spirits.  They also used it in abundance spells and rituals, believing it would bring helpful people and material gain to its wearer.

Tiger’s Eye is a protective stone that was traditionally carried as a talisman against ill wishing and curses.  It shows the correct use of power and brings out integrity.
