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.

I love gemselect and I have bought a fair amount from them. The only complaint I have is not being able to save gems. I have a lot of projects so i am in the market for a lot of different gems and it's so disappointing to have to delete them all just to purchase one or two that I have saved in my cart.
