Cat's Eye Quartz

This material is not very valuable, despite its attractiveness. It is usually cut into round polished pieces for necklaces or pendants. Quartz cat's eye is formed from fluids associated with intrusive magmatic phenomena. Often confused with chrysoberyl cat's eye, the material is sensitive to acids.

Crystal: Hexagonal

Color: Semi-tranparent but becomes greenish-gray or green when ground.
