While we have offered several faceted examples of this classic Australian mineral in the past years, this is the first time we have had a cat’s eye stone. That is somewhat surprising given that the crystals often have a slight chatoyant effect, even in specimens. It is likely due the difficulty in finding a stone that was clean enough to survive cutting and polishing while still retaining this - and what an example to have. The eye is bright and distinct and rolls with ease; it is not at all static. A stone that the collector of chatoyant materials will be immensely happy with - essentially perfect.
