Valuation of cat's eye


#1

There is a 7 carat cat’s eye which im looking at. It’s got sharp rays in fact 3 when you move it around (see pic). It’s got a light green color. Any idea how much i should be paying?


#2

A cat’s-eye of this size and quality will wholesale around $5,000/ct, but do insist on an internationally respected lab report before purchasing such a gem. Ciao, Jeffery Bergman - jeffery@primagem.com

Hi, I would be a bit concerned that this cats eye has 3 strong rays(cats eyes) I have only ever see chrysoberyl cats eyes with one ray??? Any one else have comments on this fact


#4

Me too never seen cats eye with more than one Ray. Is IT chrysoberyl cats eye.If you need we can can give at ver cheap price with IGI certificate.


#5

If you look closely, there are multiple reflections on the surface of the stone indicating multiple light sources, and each light source will produce a separate eye or ray. And very fine cat’s eye chrysoberyls will often seem to open and close splitting into two rays when rotated under a single light source.


#6

I would definitely demand a reputable lab before making such a purchase.


#7

From curiosity. Did you ever get a lab report?
