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.

How do I Buy Cat’s Eye Opal from GemSelect?

It’s quite easy to shop our selection of 100% Natural Cat’s Eye Opal. Due to this stones rarity, it is only available in small quantities and is sold as Cabochon cut individual stones. GemSelect’s Cabochons are available in a wide range of sizes, and with a lot of effects and appearances to the different stones, so please shop by preference.

What colors are available in Cat’s Eye Opal?

Cat’s Eye Opal has many colors it can display naturally without any treatment. The colors can vary greatly and include natural cream tones, yellow, brown, green, multicolored, orange, and more. Cat's Eye Opal is typically greenish yellow, yellow-brown, or creamy honey color, and it exhibits a dominant cat's eye effect. The opacity of the stone can change quite a bit too with both translucent and opaque gems for purchase.

More than the colors that are displayed the importance of the stone comes from its size and the quality of the stone material itself. Some gems are of exceptional size and exhibit unusual patterns or effects, and those stones are rarer and therefore more valuable.

I ordered several specific items from Gemselect. Items are always packaged very carefully to protect the content. Gemselect always encloses a card of authenticity which documents the entire stone, its size, clarity, etc. All of the items are as they were described. I would highly recommend them to anyone who’s in the market for a gem.
