    What Are Phenomenal Gemstones-Under the Spell of a Mystical and Flirtatious Gem - Cat’s Eye Eye Chrysoberyl 

    Natural Chrysoberyl Cats eye of 3.85 carats Gemstoneuniverse


    Cat’s eye chrysoberyl is a gem that belongs to the category of phenomenal gemstones. The word Chrysos in Greek means ‘golden’ indicating a gold colored Gem- it is in fact beryllium aluminum oxide that has a transparent to translucent pale yellow to golden green color.


    The rutile needles in the internal crystal structure of chrysoberyl cats eye enable it to play in an exceptional way with light and displays an optical property called chatoyancy – or a sharp band that stretches across the surface of the gem and facilitates like opening or closing of cat’s eye as light falls across the gem. The more numerous the silk or inclusions, the sharper the chatoyant band would be. The effect is enhanced when the gem is cut like a cabochon, with the under surface left rather rough to allow maximum display on the surface.

The value of a cat’s eye or any other phenomenal gemstone for that matter is also determined by the intensity of the optical phenomenon aside of the 4C’s of cut, color, clarity and carat weight.
