Tiger iron (also referred to as tiger jasper, tigereye matrix and mugglestone) is a banded ironstone rock composed of multiple layers of golden tiger eye, red jasper and hematite (a form of iron oxide). Some may contain higher levels of iron and others have higher amounts of jasper. This fascinating stone was created through a sedimentary process where the alternating layers of material formed over thousands of years.
From a metaphysical perspective, it is thought to be a cardinal grounding stone that also brings protection. It is sought after to bring strength, vitality, confidence, willpower and balance.
