Cat's Eye

Posted by Laura Greenshields on



Cymbidium is commonly referred to as "cat's eye". This stone  has a chatoyancy quality which reminds us of the marks of a feline's eye. When cut to create a cabochon, the crystal shapes a stone with a shiny, light-green exterior with a silky band of green running across the top of the stone.





Cat's eye was made more famous at the end of the 19h century when the Duke of Connaught offered an engagement ring with a cat's eye as the feature stone. The enhanced demand generated an intense quest for fresh supplies within Sri Lanka.
