Tiger's Eye and Sterling Silver Ring, size 8-1/2. This a hand crafted art piece, jewelry that makes a fashion statement. I personally selected the amber cabochon, then hand forged the sterling silver to take advantage of the beauty of the stone.
Tiger's eye is a chatoyant gemstone that is usually a metamorphic rock with a golden to red-brown colour and a silky lustre. A member of the quartz group, tiger's eye and the related blue-coloured mineral hawk's eye gain their silky, lustrous appearance from the parallel intergrowth of quartz crystals and altered amphibole fibres that have mostly turned into limonite.
Metaphysical: Tigers Eye promotes self-confidence and inner strength. Tiger's Eye has the power to focus the mind, promote mental clarity, assisting to resolve problems objectively. It is particularly useful for healing psychosomatic illnesses, dispelling fear and anxiety.
