Octopuses are amazing creatures and I am fascinated by their intelligence and ability to squeeze through tiny gaps by rapidly changing their body shape.
Cat’s Eye Tourmaline is rare variety of tourmaline which gives off a unique reflection of light that resembles the slit eye of a cat. The technical term used by gemologists to refer to the cat’s eye effect is ‘chatoyancy’, derived from the French phrase ‘oeil de chat’, which means ‘eye of the cat’.
It is a large ring in Size Q that can be made a little larger. Please note there is a natural inclusion in the stone.
