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.
Metaphysical Properties of Tiger Iron: 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.
