About Cat’s Eye Opal

Cat’s Eye Opal is a rare type of Opal that displays an effect when adequately cut and polished. These stones naturally present a bright line of light across the surface of the gemstone. In fact what is happening is a visual phenomenon that’s occurring from many fine inclusions that are in the stone.

When light enters into Cat’s Eye Opal or any ‘cats eye’ stone for that matter, it bounces back out creating a stunning visual effect that’s sought after. Almost all of our Cat's Eye Opal is sourced from Madagascar and is untreated. Occasionally you may see a stone from a different source or a gem that has a treatment of some type all the details will be on the stones detail page.

The opacity of the stone can change quite a bit too with both translucent and opaque gems for purchase.

In my 20's I imported gemstones. I decided to try it again, for gifts. I found GemSelect; studied their website; talked with them and decided to make a purchase.

I would recommend GEMSELECT based upon the variety of gems. Gems that i didn't expect to even be apart of the selection and it gave me more options. Options in which played a key role in finding the right gem. Its always good to have options especially when trying to formulate a good piece of art work that has uniqueness. Which ultimately captures costumers eye appeal.

Gemselect is o.k the prices are pretty good, but the shipping prices really suck, one time I order from them and order got lost or never came, but they were good about fixing the problem and rectifying the situation, the stones and good, and the ones that come in the mail, look just as pictured on the website, or all it's not bad and its were I go to get my stones.
