Tigereye is a quartz that gets its name from its resemblance to the eye of a tiger. Roman soldiers reportedly wore tigereye for protection in battle, and the stone was thought to be all-seeing due to its ocular appearance. However, tigereye made its gemstone debut sometime in the late 19th century. It was much more valuable back then than today, fetching several dollars per carat.

Traditionally, tigereye has been used as a gift between lovers to ease sexual tension and help partners tune in to each other in a psychic or telepathic way. It also is believed to pull one into a more positive and flexible attitude, and is said to be especially effective for stubborn people. Conversely, many wear the stone to strengthen convictions, and to acquire courage and confidence. It also is reputed to relieve such physical conditions as high blood pressure, bronchial asthma, heart disease and psoriasis. Tigereye is found mainly in South Africa, but also in Australia, Burma, Namibia and California in the USA. It is associated with the astrological sign Capricorn..
