Tiger Eye Buddhist Mala. Buddhist mala with 108 beads, made with tiger eye stone. Each bead has 8mm and has as decoration a face of the buddha in white metal.
Tiger Eye: The material chosen for the mala of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. It is folklore as a stone of power. Tiger’s Eye has a wonderful reputation for attracting wealth, money and luck. However, it also has powerful spiritual uses. The liquid movement of light through the stone makes it an excellent tool for vision work or divination.
The gemstone known as Tiger’s Eye is a form of Quartz chalcedony, but it did not start out as Quartz. It started as the blue fibrous mineral called crocidolite and was gradually transformed into Quartz while retaining its fibrous formations. Tiger’s Eye is called exactly that to resemble a cat’s eye with its brown base and attractive, golden yellow glow. Tiger’s Eye comes mainly from South Africa and East Asia.
