IGS (International Gem Society) Cat’s eye chrysoberyl is also known as cymophane. That name comes from a Greek word meaning “appearing like a wave,” alluding to the opalescent, hazy appearance of the surface of some crystals. However, the eye of a chatoyant chrysoberyl is the sharpest of any cat’s eye gemstone. This is due to the fine silk inclusions that create the effect. A microscope is needed to resolve these fibers. The eye in a chrysoberyl cat’s eye often has a shimmering blue tone.
Etymology: From the Greek chrysos for “golden” and beryllos, a sea-green precious stone, in reference to the typical yellowish-green color of this mineral.
