Tiger Iron





(Also known as Mugglestone) a combination of Golden Brown Tiger Eye, Hematite, and Red Jasper, exhibits the metaphysical properties of its components as well as its own. Tiger Iron is the perfect companion for those who tend to take on others feelings and emotions (whether consciously or unconsciously). Readers and Healers should keep a piece of Tiger Iron close to remain grounded, balanced and centered during a session.

Tiger Iron is a powerful lower Chakra stone, promoting physical vitality, energy, and stamina. Tiger Iron is a helpful aid to those who feel emotionally, mentally or physically exhausted and burned out. Full of grounding Earth energy, Tiger Iron also helps to find courage and refuge in times of danger, and promotes a deeper connection to the Earth and her cycles. Tiger Iron, like Golden Brown Tiger Eye, is helpful in manifesting ideas into reality and giving personal strength in times of change.

Tiger Iron is a great stone to use for creative solutions and ideas. Many musicians, artists, actors, and writers find Tiger Iron to be a perfect ally in their pursuits, but it is also helpful for any in the working world to come up with new ways of dealing with old problems.

Tiger Iron acts as a supreme healing stone, encouraging the remembrance of perfection within the cells, and can be therefore laid upon any affected areas to bring improvement. For those sensitive types, Tiger Iron can pull extraneous energies down into the lower chakras, thereby enhancing emotional integrity and centering the self.

Physically, Tiger Iron can assist those who have chemical or noise sensitivities. It can be used to relieve stress and aid in soothing fractures, cramps and aching muscles.

  1. I used to have one of these when I was younger. A damn bird made away with most of my stone collection though! Why was I so careless as a child?

    However, by made away I mean took some and scattered the rest all over the place, managed to find some.
