Eye of the Tiger Tiger’s eye is a hard stone, a variety of quartz and owes its name to the color that strongly recalls the eyes of the most elegant and imposing of felines: the tiger. Always considered a lucky stone, modern crystal therapy attributes to Tiger’s eye the ability to be a remedy for anxiety (it would have the aptitude to restore the calm necessary to make the most important decisions). Brown and golden yellow lends itself to the combination with the color of gold for precious jewels and accessories for both men and women. In the seventies it had its greatest diffusion and even the Rolex brand created a model with important Tiger Eye inserts. Today, when we are experiencing the great vintage trend, both as a revaluation and market for models of the past and with new ones of inspiration, it brings Tiger’s Eye back to the fore in an important way. In short, a charming gift, pleasant and certainly not superficial or of little significance.
