Tiger iron

Historical Properties

Tiger Iron, sometimes called mugglestone, is a metamorphosed gemstone of Red Jasper, Tiger's Eye and Hematite that became fused together over two billion years when tectonic plates shifted to create the Australian continent. It literally embodies the growth and evolution of the Earth.

Tiger Iron stone is a natural work of art, with layers of silver, brown, red, yellow and gold creating unique vertical and horizontal patterns in each stone.

Tiger Iron was often worn by shaman to provide protection. It holds an aspect of solar energy and a connection to the solar plexus chakra, which also helped shaman in their magical practices. It was considered a sacred stone during the performance of, and adherence to, "the old ways" of the Native American Indians.
