Tourmaline with tiny parallel inclusions sometimes display a strong cat's eye effect when polished. The cat's eye or chatoyancy effect is most easily seen in strong light, especially in sunlight. Cat's eye tourmaline stones are usually found in pink and green. They are not uncommon but can be difficult to find, making them of interest to collectors. Since tourmaline cat's eyes are usually cut as cabochons, one can often find fairly large pieces.

man their gems are pretty good, and the prices aren't to bad either, I like checking out hte gems on there website, beceause the pictures of the gems are taken pretty well, and you can see the table, and the facets.
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.
