Zodiac sign: Leo
A reddish variety of Tiger’s Eye that occurs naturally when the golden brown variety is exposed to further metamorphic activity, such as fire or lightning, converting the iron oxide into red Hematite. Associated with the strength and courage of the bull, this stone is a fierce defense against any form of bullying, and as an antidote of calm for use in situations or places where tempers often flare and stress nears the boiling point. It is ideal for shoring up one’s inner strength, courage and self-confidence in order to tap into one’s personal power. It is a stimulating stone, replacing lethargy and procrastination with enthusiasm and motivation, unblocking creative energy and inspiring one’s inner entrepreneur. It increases determination and aids one in implementing ideas into action. Also called Red Tiger’s Eye.
HEALING: It is helpful for speeding up a slow metabolism and increasing a low sex drive.
