• Cat's Eye Chrysoberyl - phenomenal gem

    Chrysoberyl – Natural, Cabochon, Yellow

    Phenomenal gems, like this cat's eye chrysoberyl, display striking visual effects created by the interaction of light and the gemstone. However, not all visual effects are considered phenomenal. Some phenomenal effects are not well known, and others are not yet well understood, even by gemologists. "Cat's Eye Chrysoberyl 6.05 $18,500" by Ian Brown in licensed under CC By-ND 2.0
