CAT'S EYE

Some information about cat's eye :

Colour:

Appearance:

Cat's eye is a gem which displays a band of light at the top which moves when the gem is tilted. It is generally found in greenish, brownish, yellowish and colourless shades. It is a farely hard material which wears well as a ring stone.

Identification:

Being an opaque gem it poses certain difficulties in differentiating the natural gem and an artificial material. One striking difference which one can tell after some experience of seeing natural cat's eye gems is that the artificial cat's eye will be too clear and the cat's eye effect will be too marked. But a closer examination under magnification will show signs of a natural gem - like small marks, grains of stone and the small irregularies below the polished surface. The lower part of a cat's eye is not polished but is only grinded, so one can see the roughness of the stone there.One very important factor, which anyone trying to identify a gem should note, is that some deformities are always present in a gem - their absence should be a cause of concern and not their presence.
