Cats Eye Jewelry

Chatoyancy is an optical phenomenon distinguished by a unique reflection of light that closely resembles the slit-eye of a cat. When the mineral is cut into a cabochon, a silky bank of light extends across the surface of the stone. This light is caused by inclusions of fine, slender parallel mineral fibers.

Chrysoberyl Cat's Eye is the primary gemstone for Ketu. This gemstone is a beryllium and is the most valuable of the gemstones displaying chatoyancy. There exist other less expensive gemstones with similar cat's eye effect. These gemstones are featured below as well.
