Charging your Crystal

It is believed that crystals, in general, absorb the energies of the wearer as well. Much like the clear quartz, it is recommended to energize your Tiger Eye by putting it under clear, running water, then letting it bathe under the sun for a few hours. It’s sure to recharge it and make it more potent as a talisman if this is done regularly.
Those who use the crystal for meditation purposes should do this regularly to make sure the energies in oneself and the stone are balanced out.
Caring for your stone
To make sure that the stone retains its forms, avoid wearing the stone during any contact sport. Perfumes and cosmetics can also affect the metal around the stone. Make sure you are caring for the metal wiring of the stone as well as the stone itself to protect it from tarnishes and malformations.
