The use of Tiger eye dates back thousands of years, when it was carved into amulets and talismans worn by ancient Roman soldiers for strength, courage and protection in battle. The tiger eye "flash" was believed to be distracting to the opponent, making it more difficult for them to be seen well enough to make an accurate shot giving it an air of protection. The ancient Egyptians used Tiger’s Eye to transmit the power of the Sun God Ra, to create material success and abundance.
Blue tigers eye is a member of the quartz family with a golden blue sheen. Its silky lustre forms when fibres of the mineral crocidolite are replaced by silica. Crocidolite is a bluish grey colour and when the pseudomorphism to quartz is incomplete, this results in causing the colouring of the blue tigers eye stone. It is chatoyant (cats eye) gemstone when polished.
