About Cat's Eye Gemstone

Overview

The name of this stone owes its origin to its shape resembling the eye of a cat created due to an optical phenomenon called chatoyancy. It is the phenomenon where light bounces off the gemstone, creating a narrow band on it and making it look like a reflection from a cat’s eye. 

  • It is a beautiful offering of the Chrysoberyl family of minerals.
  • The cat’s eye stone in Hindi is named vaiduryam stone, lehsuniya ratna, and even Ketu stone as it represents the Moon’s South Node(Ketu) and works on removing the evil impact of the South Node and diseases due to the planet Mars. 

The vaidooryam stone is available in different colors ranging from white, yellowish-green, black, gray, and honey and is sourced majorly from the states of Odisha, Kerala, and Andhra Pradesh.

Who Should Wear?

Who should wear Cat's Eye Stone:

  • As per Vedic astrology, the cat’s eye stone ring harnesses the energy of Ketu (called the serpent’s head/ dragon’s tail).
  • Ketu is considered a shadow planet or a half-planet due to its intense astrological impact.
  • While Ketu is intangible energy, and therefore the stone is not associated with a specific month, it is generally considered a birthstone for June
  • Usually, the people of the Gemini zodiac sign(May 21- June 20) or those having Ketu Dasha in their birth charts wear a cat’s eye ring.  

This stone is powerful, so the wearer must consult a professional astrologer to study their birth chart.

Cat’s Eye Stone Prices

Price of Cat's Eye Stone:

It is a powerful gemstone that can drastically change a person’s life. The price of a cat’s eye stone depends on various factors: 

  • Color- Usually, brown or yellowish-colored gemstones are priced higher than black or smoky ones. Dual tones/hues in the stone devalue the quality and price. 
  • Chatoyancy- the lehsunia ratna or the cat’s eye prices go up when the narrow band that gives an effect of the eye of the cat is clear, unbroken, and well-centered. The better visual appeal of the slit drives the gemstone prices higher. 
  • Transparency- The cat’s eye is usually available as an opaque stone. Since transparent ones are rare, they are costly. 
  • Treatment- This statement holds true for all gemstones. Less hampering with the natural stone drives up the costs. The more a gemstone gets subjected to treatment, the cheaper it will be. 
  • Origin- The Sri Lankan variety is valued higher than the one from Madagascar or Namibia.
