Whether you have a large Tigers eye gemstone, or a small Tigers Eye Gemstone, the stone has been a symbol of courage for thousands of years. The Tigers Eye is known as the evil eye. Maybe it’s the colors of browns mixed with yellows at the center that has led this gemstone to be called the Evil Eye. I don’t know. Legend has it that when you need protection from evil forces, or courage to get through, this is the gemstone to wear. Keep it close and be brave!
