Cut: Oval Cabochon
Locality: Sri Lanka
Here is a unique phenomenon gem! Topaz rarely makes Cat’s Eye stones and this is a fine quality one. This beautiful stone displays a distinct, reasonably sharp Cat’s Eye effect that travels well across the crown of the cabochon. The Cat’s Eye effect is caused from oriented inclusions inside the gem that reflect light directionally. Typically, the inclusions are long cylindrical air pockets or a mineral called Rutile, this stone has air pockets. The orientation of the gem when it is cabbed is crucial. If it is not done properly the cabochon will display the Cat’s Eye off to one side or another, and will never look right. This gem was oriented practically perfect. This is a fantastic Cat’s Eye stone that will make a nice addition to a collection or a lovely piece of jewelry. Enjoy!
