LEGEND OF TIGER EYE BLUE GEM STONE

Tigers Eye gets its name due to the traditional brown-orange and black coloring of the stone, similar to the eye of a tiger and strength of a hawk. Roman soldiers wore this stone, as they believed it was an ‘all seeing’ eye. Many ancient cultures believed this stone to be a protector against the evil eye and especially protective for travelers.
