Tiger Eye is formed when the fibers in Crocidolite are replaces with silica, giving the stone its characteristic satin sheen. A very protective stone, Tiger Eye can ward off the effects of curses and ill-wishing and also protect you in dream states and on the astral planes. Carrying the stone allegedly makes you irresistible to the opposite sex.
Sometimes called the Stone of Balance, Tiger Eye blends opposite energies to bring balance and understanding. An excellent stone for anyone caught up in a situation where they have to be the diplomat or mediator. Helps you see both sides of an argument and make detached, logical judgments. Meditation with the stone can help you find the path of power that lies between polarities. Strengthens your connection to elemental Earth and is helpful for grounding higher energies so that you can cope with the practicalities of everyday life.
Red Tiger Eye increases confidence, especially when speaking in public.
Gold Tiger Eye focuses the mind, increasing visualization skills, psychic vision and insights during meditation. If you are forced to spend time with a person who drains your energy protect yourself with a charm bag containing Holy Thistle, Spearmint, Walnut leaves and a piece of Tiger Eye.FONTE:

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Tiger's eye (also called Tigers eye or Tiger eye) is a chatoyant gemstone that is usually a metamorphic rock that is a golden to red-brown color, with a silky luster. A member of the quartz group, it is a classic example of pseudomorphous replacement by silica of fibrous crocidolite (blue asbestos). An incompletely silicified blue variant is called Hawk's eye.
Cut, treatment, and imitation
The gems are usually cut en cabochon in order to best display their chatoyancy. Red stones are brought about through gentle heat treatment. Dark stones have had their colors improved and been artificially lightened using nitric acid treatments.
Honey-colored stones have been used to imitate the much higher valued cat's eye chrysoberyl (cymophane), but the overall effect is unconvincing. Artificial fiberoptic glass is a common imitation of tiger's eye, and is produced in a wide range of colors. Tiger's Eye mostly comes from South Africa and East Asia.

Tiger iron is an altered rock composed chiefly of tiger's eye, red jasper, and black hematite. The undulating, contrasting bands of color and luster make for an attractive motif, and it is mainly used for jewelry-making and ornamentation. Tiger iron is a popular ornamental material used in a variety of applications, from beads to knife hilts.
Tiger iron is mined primarily in South Africa and Western Australia. Tiger's eye is composed chiefly of silicon dioxide (SiO2) and is colored mainly by iron oxide. The specific gravity ranges from 2.64 -2.71. It is formed by the alteration of crocidolite.
Other forms of tiger's eye
Arizona and California have serpentine deposits in which are occasionally found chatoyant bands of chrysotile fibers. These have been cut and sold as "Arizona tiger-eye" and "California tiger's eye" gemstones.
Notable sources of tiger's eye include the Australia, Burma, India, Namibia, South Africa, United States, Brazil, Canada, China, Korea and Spain.
