Tiger Iron consists of Red Jasper, Hematite, and Tiger's Eye (or tiger eye). Tiger Iron is a great example of a metamorphosed gemstone: More than 2 billion years ago, deposits of these three materials were slowly mashed together as tectonic plates shifted. The tremendous pressures on the original crystals resulted in the intricate, banded designs of tiger iron. Each stone can be seen distinctly in layers of gold, silver, brown and red, drawing unique vertical and horizontal patterns. While the stone is many millennia old, it only recently has become known on the market.
Metaphysical Properties of Tiger Ion: Tiger Iron is said to help with creative endeavors and all types of artistic abilities. Tiger Iron is a stone of strength, stamina, and courage.
