More About Blue Tiger’s Eye:
Like other forms of tiger’s eye, the blue variety (often called Hawk’s Eye) is a form of quartz in which silky asbestos fibers have been trapped within the SiO2, giving it a distinctive sheen. Don’t worry! Even though it contains asbestos, it is safe to handle in its polished or tumbled form (the fibers are trapped within the Quartz). The form of asbestos is Crocidilite, an iron-bearing mineral that’s normally blue in color. When that iron rusts before it gets trapped within the silica, it turns brown and results in golden tiger’s eye. But if the silica infiltrates the fibers before the iron has time to rust, the blue color is retained, resulting in Blue Tiger’s Eye. Blue tiger’s eye contains crocidolite (blue asbestos) fibers. When the iron in these fibers oxidizes, the stone bearing it becomes red or golden tiger’s eye.
Combining the raw power of Tiger’s Eye with the blue color association gives an interesting and useful combination of metaphysical characteristics. All tiger’s eye is great for removing habits that no longer serve, plowing through details of your to-do list, and getting down to business. Tiger’s Eye is a great stone for putting “pedal to the metal,” taking charge of what you want and bringing it into reality. It’s also a traditional stone for warding off the evil eye. It can make you feel grounded, empowered and protected. Along with this, the blue variety boosts the power and effectiveness of all forms of communication. When it comes to setting and achieving goals, communication is an important factor that’s sometimes overlooked. Another traditional use is for averting the evil eye.
Since it contains asbestos, please don’t use it for crystal elixirs.
One way to use this stone: Blue Tiger’s Eye makes a great pocket stone — one you’ll want to keep with you throughout the day. It’s a great choice for a palm stone or worry stone, but a small polished piece in your pocket or bag can serve just as well. You might want to keep it on your desk as you work, study, and manage various projects in your life. Then when you’re done for the day, keep your Blue Tiger’s Eye near your other stones to “recharge” it overnight.
