What is Red Tiger’s Eye and Where is it Found?

Red tiger’s eye (or dragon's eye) is brownish red and has lines both light and dark running through it. Stones exhibit a subtle amount of flash. It has the same basic properties as regular tiger’s eye, and has additional traits relative to its coloring. Tiger’s eye was previously believed to be pseudomorphic, but is now understood to have been created by a cracking and sealing process (which is fully described on the page linked to above [5th paragraph]). This rich looking beauty is found in South Africa, India, Canada, and the United States.

With the Base, or Root Chakra

Because it is connected energetically to the root chakra (as well as to the sacral and solar plexus chakras), it will ground you to the earth. Having a connection between your physical body and the earth connects you with your innate survival and self preservation skills. Red tiger’s eye is sometimes called ‘the survival stone’ for this reason.

The metaphysical properties it has include the ability to enhance these things: integrity, practicality, willpower, self care and motivation; as well it encourages you to adopt a healthy passion for any project or experience that may come about. While on one hand this stone can boost our energies, it can also help us to take a breath, to relax and slow down… when required to it can have a slowing effect on the third chakra and flush out any excess energies.

Being a type of tiger's eye, it is known to create balance within interactions with others; not only that, but it is understood to create balance in many areas, such as between your dark and light aspects of self, yin to yang, within emotions, and between spiritual and Earthly aspects of awareness.

In Physical Healing

This crystal type is all about strength and vitality. It can be used to boost sexual energies, and will regulate the natural rhythms of the female body. Anemia and other blood health issues can also be improved. It accelerates the metabolism, and benefits muscle tissue and bones; it can spur improvement in the health of teeth, nails, the rectum, the prostate gland, and the colon.

In terms of it being an 'eye stone,' healing from eye an infection, improvement of night vision, and even spiritual clarity, can all be achieved through working with red tiger’s eye. Though it isn't primarily associated with the third eye chakra, it is known to be effective to heighten the gift of psychic vision. As well it promotes balance within your etheric field and encourages you to give and receive unconditional love.


Besides heightening your motivation, enthusiasm, self confidence and strength, it can help to calm your mind and ease anxiety in preparation for things to come, and can offer spiritual protection, improve luck, and give you a boost towards prosperity.
