Tigers eye can also be a good feng shui enhancer for the West and Northwest bagua areas of a home or office because it brings a quality of energy that is clear, crisp and earthy. Crispness and clarity are the properties attributed to the Metal feng shui element that dominates these two bagua areas.
The earthiness of tigers eye is supportive of Metal, so the combination of two makes the tigers eye an excellent feng shui cure for either of these two bagua areas.

Depending on your needs, you can choose a typical classical feng shui cure in tigers eye, such as the pi yao, for example, or you can just go for several tumble stones in a bowl. You can also decorate with a sphere made from tigers eye, or find a gem tree that has tigers eye in it.
Of course, good feng shui jewelry, as always, is such an excellent option to benefit from the powerful energies of any crystal or stone.

A couple of smooth tigers eye tumbled stones in your pocket or purse might be a more practical idea if you do not like to wear jewelry. As with most crystals and stones, do not forget to clear the energy of your tigers eye from time to time.
