Free form green glass cat’s eye cabochon


Free form green glass cat’s eye cabochon

SKU: CA101 Category:


This unique, free form glass cat’s eye cabochon was donated by Andrew Fahmy and measures 35mm x 45mm. This cabochon was carved and shaped with layered levels to highlight the optical effect of “cat’s eye”. The “Cat’s eye” effect, or chatoyancy, is caused by parallel fibrous or needle-like inclusions that interfere with the passage of light through the crystal, scattering and reflecting light back to the viewer as a thin line. This bright, narrow slit is similar to the eyes of a cat, hence “cat’s eye”. 

100% of the proceeds from your purchase will be used to fund the Bidwell Gem & Mineral Museum. All shop items were donated by members of the Glendora Gems Lapidary Club.
