These beautiful beads are a gorgeous golden brown in colour with stripes throughout, similar to the effect created by cats eye. They are opaque (light does not pass through).
Tiger eye is said to enhance stability and personal growth, and has a very earthy feel and look. It is often used as a stone of protection, said to have the power to focus the mind and body to the task at hand.
