Tiger eye or tigers eye is a member of the quartz family of stones. It is a brownish-gold gemstone to a reddish gold gemstone that may produce a chatoyancy or flash when it is turned in the light. This flash is said to resemble the "eye's of a tiger" and thus that is where the name comes from. It also will come in purely red and blue colors, although more rarely. Sometimes the gold blue variation is called hawks eye.

Expert gem cutters will carefully examine the rock so cut stones will be very beautiful. A lot of time and effort goes into the mining and cutting process to produce the finest tiger eye gems.
Tiger eye is said by some to help soften stubbornness and enhance perception and insight. It is also said to aid fisherman and other travelers.
