any of severalgemstones that, when cuten cabochon
(in convex form, highly polished), display a luminous band reminiscent of the eye of a cat; this particular quality is termedchatoyancy. Precious, or oriental, cat''s-eye, the rarest and most highly prized, is a greenish chatoyant variety ofchrysoberylcalledcymophane;the chatoyant effect is due to minute parallel cavities.Quartz cat''s-eye, the commonest, owes its chatoyancy and grayish-green or greenish colour to parallel fibres of asbestos in the quartz; although it comes from the East, it is often called occidental cat''s-eye to differentiate it from the more valuable oriental (chrysoberyl) cat''s-eye. The two may be distinguished by their specific gravities; chrysoberyl is much denser. Crocidolite cat''s-eye (African cat''s-eye), more commonly known astigereye(or tiger''s-eye), is quartz that contains oriented fibres ofcrocidolitethat have been replaced by silica. Corundum cat''s-eye is an imperfect starsapphireorrubyin which the star is reduced to a luminous zone.
