Our Chatoyant Quartz Mineral Specimens are 100% Natural cats eye quartz!

The chatoyancy or cat's eye effect visible in our natural cats eye quartz mineral specimens is due to the presence of fibrous mineral inclusions or tubelike cavities in parallel orientation within the quartz. These parallel oriented features reflect light at certain angles forming of a brighter zone which moves across the surface of the material as it is turned. When fashioned with a rounded surface or cabochon shape, this cat's eye effect becomes easily visible.
