Cat's eye Beryllonite is not at all common.  Relatively recent finds in Afghanistan have produced some of the only examples of Beryllonite with an attractive chatoyancy.  The material is capable of producing a surprisingly strong eye and the white-on-white appearance is striking.  The eye rolls well on the thin, tubular inclusions and is nicely centered - the back is flat with absolutely no wasted weight.  Very nice example that is noticeably more transparent than most.
