This bracelet is made of Red Tiger's Eye Nuggets. I wrapped them in copper to accent the red in the gem. Each nugget is wrapped and the round and heart beads are magnetic. I used magnetic beads to help those who have arthritis. They say tiger's eye is a "feel good" stone.

The bracelet is 7 1/2 " long and has a toggle clasp.

Copper plays a vital role in shaping our lives. People have been using copper since 9000 BC. One of the reasons copper is so important is that it can be made into alloys. That means it can be combined with other metals to make new alloys, like brass and bronze. These are harder, stronger and more corrosion resistant than pure copper.

Copper is a naturally hygienic metal that slows down the growth of germs such as E-coli (the “burger bug”), MRSA (the hospital “superbug”) and legionella.
This is important for applications such as food preparation, hospitals, coins (see biocidal copper), door knobs and plumbing systems.


Tigers Eye is a form of quartz with some special characteristics. Like all quartz it is made up primarily of silicone dioxide, SiO2.

Within this matrix are asbestos fibers usually occurring in layers. It is the asbestos that makes Tiger eye a chatoyant gemstone, meaning the fibers (asbestos) of the stone reflect in a wavering silky luster that can resemble the eye of a cat.

The word Chatoyant comes from the French meaning “cat’s eye”.

Tiger’s Eye can be found in several colors: yellow, red-brown, and blue being common. The blue variety is also known as Hawk’s Eye quartz. Blue Tiger’s Eye or Hawk’s Eye is formed when fibers of silicate form along side crocidolite.

Tiger’s Eye has a hardness of 6 on the Mohs scale.

Tigers eye is often used in jewelry, usually cut into cabochons to show off their chatoyancy.

It is found in the US, Canada, Brazil, China, India, and Burma.
