Cats Eye Quality

Cat's Eye is a unique gemstone and has been named so because of its striking resemblance to the eye of a cat. This resemblance is caused by the phenomenon known as ‘Chatoyancy’ displayed because of the presence of unique white lines on the surface of the gemstone that look like reflection of light.

  • The quality of Cats Eye depends upon its Cut, Color and Clarity. The stone should have a smooth surface and be free of spots and natural inclusions. The color should be pure and uniform.
  • For Astrological purpose, the Cats Eye's quality depends mainly on the absence of spots and blemishes and less on color.
  • The cut and shape of Cats Eye only has ornamental significance and not astrological. However, it is considered better to have a neatly polished and round surface.

Where Should I Buy Natural Cats Eye?

Be careful as many dealers sell treated or synthetic Cat’s Eye having less or no astrological effects. Some unethical jewelers pass off Quartz Cat's Eye as Chrysoberyl Cat's Eye to unsuspecting customers. Therefore, when you buy Cats Eye Online, ensure that you get a Lab Certificate of its authenticity from a Reputed Lab and that the dealer is ready to get the gemstone certified from any reputed lab of your choice (careful: there are fake labs as well!).
The seller should also have a clear refund policy and hopefully, a large presence (larger organizations are likely to be more careful about their brand and stay away from unethical practices).
