21.89ct natural cat’s eye chrysoberyl with a superior ‘Honey’ color.
This high carat gem is exemplar of collector quality cat’s eye. It is that particular tinge of translucent greenish yellow that is not too dark or too pale, distinguished by its honey color (and honey-like texture within!).
The distinct band is without doubt.
This cat’s eye feels perfect.
As an artistic jeweller, I know that the honey effect of this cat’s eye makes for a lively gem – it will not insist on the use of accent diamonds in order to shine or ‘open up’. This is important as I like to know the use of diamonds should be ornamental, not necessary.
The size of this cat’s eye is a surreal luxury.
All photos are taken in natural light (only the one on the palm is taken at night). The focused light source is to display the ‘cat’s eye’ chatoyancy and the honey effect.
The gem measures 14.31mm x 12.92mm x 11.85mm.
