Cat Eye stone, also known as the “Lehsunia” in Hindu astrology, is a gemstone that has been fascinated people for centuries. This shimmering gemstone is highly prized for its unique appearance and the belief that it holds mystical powers. The name “Cat’s Eye” is derived from the distinct appearance of the stone, which resembles the slit eye of a cat.
The stone is made of chrysoberyl and is formed when parallel inclusions of fibrous minerals are present in the chrysoberyl crystal. This gives the stone its distinctive chatoyant effect, where a single line of light appears to move across the stone when it is viewed from different angles. The most sought-after colour of the cat's eye stone is a rich honey-yellow, however, it can also be found in other colours such as green, brown, and grey.
In Hindu astrology, the cat's eye stone is believed to bring good luck and prosperity to the wearer. It is said to protect against negative energies and bring financial stability. The stone is also believed to enhance intuition, concentration, and mental clarity. It is often recommended for people who are facing challenges in their professional or personal lives.
The cat's eye stone is also believed to have healing properties. It is said to be beneficial for people who suffer from eye problems, nervous system disorders, and digestive issues. In addition, it is believed to have a calming effect on the mind and body, helping to reduce stress and anxiety.
Factors that can affect the price of a cat's eye stone include its clarity, brightness, and the distinctiveness of its chatoyancy (the line of light that moves across the stone). The colour of the stone is also important, with yellow being the most coveted colour and green being the rarest. The cat's eye stone’s price may also be influenced by its overall rarity, with stones of higher quality being more difficult to find.
