Cat’s eye chrysoberyl (Lahsuniya)
Cats eye chrysoberyl with its band of reflected light across the middle ,has always reminded observers of the eye of the cat

The band of light that an observer sees in the middle of the stone is the CAT’S EYE EFFECT. The stone in itself is not cat’s eye.


Cat’s eye effects occur in other gemstones. LIKE CAT’S EYE QUARTZ, CAT’S EYE SILLAMINTE. Cat’s eye effect is gemologically called Chatoyancy that is a result of tiny fibers, or needles, naturally arranged in a parallel configuration.

Cat’s eye chrysoberyl ranges from brown to greenish yellow. The finest quality specimens boast a golden color with bands that span the entire length of the gem. The bands themselves are distinct, silvery-white and straight.

CAT’S EYE CHRYSOBERYL show another feature called MILK AND HONEY. With the light perpendicular to the chatoyant band, the side close to the stone shows stone’s original body color while the other side shows a milky appearance.
