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.

finally bought the last rock to complete my ring idea; needed another white one after giving the big diamond to my daughter. a diamond that size is out of my retired-school-teacher budget, so i bought a white zircon. went back to the same place that i got my loose sapphire-- great selection, good prices, good delivery!
