This stone has bands of gold that striate around the circumference, and the ones I’ve seen are usually smooth rather than the rugged variety.
They are symbolic of power and confidence, that help make difficult choices and believed to draw from the tigers courage and cunning, in addition to helping with the digestive system.
Because it’s significant to the second chakra the Tigers Eye is associated with creativity and the dynamic energy that is derived from the mania part of manic depression, yet is an enabler to combat through its bravery.
In some cultures it’s also associated with attracting money.

The Blue Tiger Eye
In the Middle Ages the blue tiger eye (also known as the Falcon’s Eye) is said to have been worn as an amulet against all things witchcraft.
Ultimately the Blue Tiger Eye is a de-stressor that enables calm for planning with clarity and lessening mood fluctuation, while simultaneously acting as a stone with powerful protective properties.
