Photos of the Jyotish Quality Cat's Eye Chrysoberyl we have for sale.
Color: Greenish yellow or yellowish green.
Clarity: Should be eye flawless, no cracks.
Shape: Cat's Eye Chrysoberyl always comes cabochon cut in round or oval shapes. The bottom is almost always lumpy which is OK. But look for overall good symmetry.
Size: 2.00 carats and larger.
Phenomenon: The eye is a line of reflected light which appears to float on the surface of the gem. It should be very straight, sharp and bright.
Enhancements: Cat's Eye Chrysoberyl is generally not enhanced, except for the rarely irradiated type.
Avoid: Weak or pale eyes (the line of light). Stay away from crooked bending eyes, cracks or significant visible flaws.
Beware: There is a type of Cat's Eye that is irradiated in a nuclear reactor and is dangerously radioactive. Beware dark chocolate body colors; these are nearly always irradiated and should not be worn. Natural, untreated Cat's Eye is yellowish green or greenish yellow, never chocolate brown color.
