The cymophane or the Ceylon cats eye is the most valuable and expensive gem of all the cat’s eyes gemstones in the market.
The quality of chatoyancy, the cut of the gem and the color are the main factors that decide the prices that they can fetch in the market.
A stone with a distinct, straight and silver-white well-centered band would be considered to be of the best quality and fetches the best price.
A semi-transparent honey color, with the honey color on one side of the band and milky appearance of the other (when light falls on the stone), is considered the most desirable color.
