Description

A very cute Tigers eye rabbit carving.

In many cultures, rabbits were symbols of fertility and prosperity. For instance, in Ancient Greece, rabbits were sacred to Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty. Whilst in some folklores they’re often portrayed as tricksters who can bring luck and good fortune if treated with respect.

Tiger’s eye is a golden to red-brown stone of quartz. Tiger’s eye gain their silky, lustrous appearance from the quartz crystals and altered amphibole fibres that have mostly turned into limonite. Found in Australia, Myanmar, India, Namibia, South Africa and the USA.

Thought to be a symbol of protection, strength, confidence, bravery and good fortune, Roman soldiers wore this stone on their breastplates when they went to battle for protection. They believed the stone would give them the strength and patience of an actual tiger. The gem was also worn as protection keeping, the wearer safe against curses.
