The human body has seven chakras, namely the crown chakra, the third eye chakra, the throat chakra, the heart chakra, the solar plexus chakra, the sacral chakra and the root chakra. The tiger's eye stones of different colors also work with different chakras.

Yellow Tiger’s Eye is connected to the solar plexus chakra. It is located around the belly button in the stomach area and is related to the pancreas, stomach, liver, gallbladder, etc. Yellow Tiger’s Eye can not only bring protection for these organs but can also prevent the solar plexus chakra from being blocked.

Blue Tiger’s Eye (Hawk’s Eye) works with the third eye chakra. It is set between the eyebrows and associated with our hypothalamus, the pituitary gland, endocrine system, head, face, etc. The third eye chakra is believed to control your insight and visual ability, so wearing it is not only good for your body’s perceptive abilities but also stimulates the potential of the third eye chakra.

How To Tell If Tiger’s Eye Is Real?

The simplest way to tell if a Tiger’s Eye is real is to put it in direct sunlight and observe it. The yellow color band will change if we tilt the stone back and forth as real Tiger’s Eye exhibits chatoyancy. The luminous band, resembling a cat’s eye, is caused by the optical reflectivity of real Tiger’s Eye. On the contrary, a fake Tiger’s Eye will not have this effect.

In the late 16th century, Tiger’s Eye was even more precious than gold because of its rarity and amazing beauty. Only tribal leaders and their immediate family could possess it.
