Mineral Family: Hawks Eye is the Blue variety of Tigers Eye and a rare Silicate mineral. Silicate minerals form the largest family of minerals, including more than 25% of all known minerals and 40% of all common minerals. In addition to being a major part of the Earth’s crust, Silicate minerals have also been found on the moon and in meteorites. Silicates are minerals which contain the elements Silicon (a light gray shiny metal) and Oxygen (a colorless gas). Together, these two elements form a tetrahedron – a shape similar to a pyramid – with a Silicon atom in the center and Oxygen atoms at each of the four corners. These tetrahedra connect with other chemical structures, in six different ways, to form various minerals and rocks. There are six main groups of Silicate minerals, and these main groups are further subdivided into secondary subdivisions, such as Quartz and Feldspar. Tigers Eye is a semi-precious variety of Quartz that exhibits chatoyancy, or a vertical luminescent band. Most Tigers Eye is golden-brown, but it can also be red or blue.

Formation: Hawks Eye is formed when quartz replaces the mineral crocidolite (blue asbestos). At this stage, the stone is blue and called Hawks Eye. If it later alters to an iron oxide it can become the more common Gold Tigers Eye.

Mining: Typically mined from the primary deposits which still have their original relationship with the host rock. Hawks Eye is sometimes mined in an open pit setting, since all varieties of Tigers Eye are found directly under the soil. Tigers Eye and Hawks Eye are the principal stone mined in the larger deposits in South Africa and Western Australia. In smaller deposits, the main purpose of a mine is more likely to be asbestos and iron.

Enhancements: While dyeing is rare, it is possible to take a pale Hawks Eye and make it a more vivid color by heating it to higher temperatures. Hawks Eye which has traces of gold Tigers Eye may be considered fully natural, enhanced only through tumbling, cutting, and polishing.

History of Hawks Eye

Red Tailed Hawk

Hawks Eye 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. Hawks Eye is sometimes called Falcon’s Eye or Blue Tigers Eye. The reference to “eye” in each of these names is because the stone seems to shimmer when moved. This trait is known in geology as “chatoyancy.” The term “chatoyant” is a combination of the French words for “cat” and “eye.”

Healing Properties of Hawk’s Eye

Hawks Eye is particularly good for anyone engaged in doing their own personal work, particularly exploring the impact of the past and/or past lives. Hawks Eye connects the Solar Plexus, Root Chakra with the Third Eye Chakra, and is linked to Capricorn,  and the element of Fire andEarth; and vibrates to the number 4.

Emotional: Hawks Eye helps us to dissolve negative emotional patterns and let go of stress. It encourages optimism and taking personal responsibility for ourselves and the situations we create. Hawks Eye is a calming stone that helps to cool quick tempers and the urge to over-react and blame others. It teaches moderation and balance as a path to personal success.

Mental: Hawks Eye shows us how to see the “big picture,” particularly in complicated and difficult situations. It helps us to see the simple solutions and to trust ourselves so we can move forward. Hawks Eye encourages diplomacy, and helps in creating positive alliances which can help us create win-win situations.

Earth to Pocket

Earth to Pocket is the Moonrise Crystal business mission. It’s the promise that any stones purchased here will be consciously sourced and the journey of the stone, from the Earth and into your Pocket, will be as transparent as possible.

These Hawks Eye were mined and tumbled in South Africa.

I met the owner of the South African tumbling company at the 2014 Gem and Mineral show in Tucson, Arizona. This company only sells tumbled stones twice a year, once at the Tucson show and later at the Sainte Marie Aux Mines International Mineral and Gem Expo in Provence, France. They offer the largest selection of high quality tumbled stones in the industry and are one of my favorite suppliers.

It would be my pleasure to hand-select a beautiful Hawks Eye for you.

Your Stone

Hawks EyeThis price is for one stone.

You can buy a single Hawks Eye or several, depending on your individual needs. Each Hawks Eye measures approximately 1 inch at its longest length and has a unique shape with soft edges. Tumbled stones are natural products and variations are part of their beauty.

The stone I choose for you will be smooth and free of chips, and have a visually pleasing pattern of predominately blue-grey stripes (with occasional green-gold stripes) and wonderful flash. If you buy multiple stones, I will choose stones that look and feel particularly good together. Stones will be cleansed and smudged with sage before being shipped to you.

With their flashing colors and clean energies, these Hawks Eyes are perfect for crystal healing. Add them to a medicine bag, place them on an altar, fashion them into jewelry, or simply carry them in your pocket.

Safe Handling of Hawks Eye

Caution!!!

Hawks Eye contains Asbestos. While in tumbled or polished form it may be considered safe to handle, it should NOT be used to make direct-infusion “Hawks Eye water” for drinking or bathing. Asbestos is a dangerous poison. You can however, make a safe elixir using an indirect method – simply place the stone near, but not touching, the water.

Good To Know:

Hawks Eye are physically durable stones. As long as they are rounded and without thin edges, they can be carried in a pocket or medicine bag, or worn as jewelry on an everyday basis, without significant danger of the stone chipping or breaking.

Hawks Eye can be physically cleansed with water or a dusting cloth.

Hawks Eye can be energetically cleansed using any method. They will appreciate being soaked in fresh water, set outside to absorb the moonlight, and/or being smudged with smoke or incense. Use your own intuition to determine the best method.

Hawks Eye can be left in sunshine for extended periods of time without losing their color, especially if the stone is opaque, rather than translucent or transparent. However, it is always considered a “best practice” to keep your stones and crystals out of direct sunlight as much as possible.
