Actinolite cat's eye is a rare chatoyant gemstone variety of the mineral actinolite. It is often misleadingly referred to as "cat's eye jade" owing to its close association with nephrite jade, one of two forms of pure forms. Actinolite and nephrite belong to the same series of minerals ranging from iron-rich tremolite to magnesium-rich ferro-actinolite amphiboles.
