Healing Properties of Tiger Iron

Spiritual: Tiger Iron combines the energies of Gold Tigers EyeRed Jasper, and silver Hematite into one vibrant healing stone. It is a phenomenal lower Chakra stone and can help form or rebuild a strong energetic foundation. Tiger Iron pulses with vitality and the primal life force, reminding us that we are ALIVE! We are Here – Now – and the possibilities before us are endless. Tiger Iron teaches us to take actions which support our spiritual ideals. It reminds us that our religion is not a church we attend once a week, our true religion is how we live every day – how we treat others and how we treat ourselves. Tiger Iron is attuned to the Root, Sacral, and Solar Plexus Chakras and  linked to the astrological sign of Leo. It is connected to the elements of Fire and Earth and vibrates to the number 7.

Emotional: Tiger Iron is a strong, steady stone that makes it particularly helpful during times of crisis. Tiger Iron helps us to stay calm and to look at situations objectively. Tiger Iron can also help us see the link between our physical body and our current emotional states. To see how our diet, exercise, sleep patterns, social habits, etc., all play a role in how we feel emotionally. Tiger Iron can help us to look at chronic anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and other mental illnesses in a different light. To see these illnesses as a physical misfiring in the brain, rather than a weakness in our mind or a weakness in ourselves. Tiger Iron encourages us to be practical, to seek out help as appropriate, and to create physical and mental habits that will naturally result in a happier and more peaceful life.  Tiger Iron is also particularly good to work with during times of family drama or stress.  It helps us to stay logical and reasonable; compassionate to others and yet firm in maintaining our own boundaries.

Mental: Tiger Iron has a very grounded, calm, and steady energy. It encourages creativity, but also the necessity of regular practice and continuing education to hone our creative skills and talents. Tiger Iron is particularly helpful for musicians and performing artists who need to work on their craft daily. Tiger Iron can also help us to quit negative addictions, by reminding us to take things one day at a time. It reminds us to celebrate the small victories as they come and to be patient with ourselves as we reinvent ourselves. Tiger Iron reinforces good habits, particularly ones dealing with creating or maintaining physical and mental health.  It is also an excellent stone to work with when we need to rebuild our financial life.

Physical: Tiger Iron is used by metaphysical healers to strengthen the blood and support the circulatory system. It is believed to help stimulate red blood cell production and to encourage self-healing from chronic illnesses. It is also said to strengthen and heal bones. Tiger Iron makes an excellent talisman for body-builders and athletes, because it is said to build muscles and increase physical performance.

Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

Rock Family: Tiger Iron is not a mineral, but rather a rock. An easy way to understand the difference is that rocks are like cookies and minerals are ingredients like flour or sugar. Many different minerals are used to create a rock! In the case of Tiger Iron, it is a sedimentary rock composed of layers of Gold Tigers Eye, Red Jasper, and silver Hematite.

Formation: Tiger Iron is a sedimentary rock, formed when various minerals or other materials are deposited on the Earth’s surface and within bodies of water. Over time the sediments are glued together into layers that can sometimes be seen with the naked eye.

Mining: Tiger Iron is found near the surface of the Earth and is mined at its primary deposit.

History of Tiger Iron

Tiger Iron is a combination of three different minerals, each of which has their own distinct history. Tiger Iron itself, however, is a relatively “new” healing stone whose properties have only recently begun to be explored. As a result, it was not included in early lapidaries, texts which describe gemstones and their powers, nor does it have any myths or historical references unique to it. This stone has been found in only two locations. When mined in South Africa it is called “Tiger Iron,” but when mined in western Australia it is called “Mugglestone.”

Hogwarts Castle

While fans of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter might automatically think the name “mugglestone” is linked to the books, the name actually predates the series. Mugglestone is an old Anglo-Saxon surname usually found in the western midlands of England. The name was first recorded in the 1086 Domesday Book, a population census taken by William the Conqueror after he claimed England. Various people named Mugglestone have emigrated to Australia in the past two centuries, including some which set up mining operations in the western part of that country. Despite this long history, the success of the Harry Potter franchise is such that this stone has now been nicknamed “Harry Potter Stone.”

Sourcing Relationship

I have been doing business with this source since the earliest days in my business.  They are a major tumbling company and have more varieties, in more sizes, than any other known source.  The owners visit many small and industrial-size mines personally.  For artisanal-mined deposits in sub-Sahara Africa, the owners work with Gem Dealers who deal directly with the part-time miners.  The majority of these Gem Dealers are women.

Some, but not all, of their stones are labeled with country-of-origin.  For those that aren’t, I have to ask the owners personally.  They tend to get impatient with questions.  As I’ve learned more about mining practices in individual countries, I have become increasingly selective about what I will purchase from them.  However, they remain my preferred source for most of sub-Sahara Africa.

    Prior to receiving this stone, I’d never seen a tiger iron specimen this large, and certainly not one this beautiful. I’m hooked on this crystal now! What great quality and amazing vibes! I have purchased healing crystals from MANY different shops on Etsy, and Moonrise Crystals is by far my favorite one. Julie has the best, most highly vibrational crystals at a good price and is an absolute pleasure to work with. I am truly in love with everything I’ve purchased from this Etsy shop! The little sachet of herbal tea that was included in my order smells delicious; shipping is fast and packaging is always lovely and secure. Very pleased in every way!

    I received the stones today, and the first words out of my mouth were “oh, wow”. They are all amazing!

Yours had such beautiful bands that clearly shows all the elements that I felt I needed to get a piece. I am not disappointed! It’s just beautiful!

  30. Jennifer S. (Colorado)

    This is a beautiful stone with wonderful light play that is difficult to capture in pictures. Love it!

  31. Lisa B. (Illinois)

    BEAUTIFUL stone! I couldn’t be happier. Thanks, Julie!

  32. Julie

    Thank you for your kind words! Whenever I pick a Tiger Iron for someone, the main thing I look for is that all three minerals are represented and that the overall appearance is attractive. Since these are 100% natural products, there exists tremendous variety between stones! For every “perfect” one, there are many more that can’t make the cut! Tiger Iron has a powerful energy that doesn’t pull any punches – its vibration isn’t a match for everyone. But when it is a match.. wowza! It feels GOOD!

  33. Stephanie G. (Wisconsin)

    The stone I received is very pretty and slightly larger than one inch. It’s composition is 90/9/1 of gold tiger’s eye, sparkly hematite, and red jasper. I found the energy to be off putting and could not touch it for more than a few seconds at a time. But I have someone in mind who my be more compatible for this piece so will pass it on. Still happy with my purchase and finding a shop owner who cares about people and the environment!

  34. Tempestt A. (New York)

    Thanks A++packaging. Came on time with no problems
