Cats Eye

The cat's eye gemstone, also known as "chrysoberyl cat's eye," is a captivating and unique variety of the chrysoberyl mineral family. Its defining feature is the distinct, narrow band of light that moves across its surface when viewed under a single light source, resembling the slit of a feline eye. This phenomenon, known as chatoyancy, is caused by the presence of microscopic inclusions of parallel-aligned fibers or needle-like crystals within the gemstone.

Cat's eye gemstones are typically golden to greenish-yellow in color, but they can also occur in shades of honey, brown, or gray. The most highly prized specimens exhibit a sharp and well-defined cat's eye effect, enhancing their allure. Renowned for their chatoyant beauty, these gems are often used in jewelry, such as rings, pendants, and earrings. Beyond their aesthetic appeal, cat's eye gemstones are believed by some to possess metaphysical properties, including providing protection and promoting good fortune.
