Design Possibilities

Imagine this: You're driving at night with the lights out. A few streaks of moonlight highlight the landscape so it rises in a jagged silhouette beside you. Those designs - like scenes illuminated in the dark - add to the intrigue of this gemstone from Australia. Also called tigereye matrix, tiger iron is a quartz-lignite aggregate of rich chocolate and dark brown tones highlighted with vibrant golden-yellow. When you include tiger iron beads in your jewelry, expect a sense of mystery mixed with the rich browns and golds that are currently so popular.

Metaphysical/Healing Properties

Since the business world became interested in Feng Shui, the ancient Chinese art of placement, spiritual values that once were regarded as entirely personal have taken on wider importance. Now many people are interested in creating harmony and balance in the workplace, too. And that's most often done through color. That's a big part of tiger iron's spiritual power. Its balance comes from the combination of yellow (earth colors) and black/dark brown (water colors). Because yellow is also associated with communication and dark colors with independence and strong self-discipline, you can give others a strong, clear message when you wear it. That message may be something like this: You know who they are, you know where you're going, you have the good sense not to drive with the lights off at night, but you could if you needed to.
