Chrysoberyl is a beautiful gem and well suited for jewellery use. The combination of high hardness (8.5) and indistinct cleavage make it very durable. Although its dispersion is low, it is a very bright and colourful gem. Cats eye Chrysoberyl is also available. Other gems such as diopside and apatite may be called cats eyes, but Chrysoberyl was the original cats eye gem. It is the finest cat eye of gems. The silky fibers are so fine that a microscope is needed to see the individual fibers. This creates a very sharp cats eye effect.
