This pendant features a cabochon of rare cat's eye opal. The opal cab is set in sterling silver, measures 1.06 x 0.40 inches (27.1 x 10.3 mm), and weighs in at 7.7 carats. I cut this stone myself.

Opal is best known for its various fiery and brightly-colored varieties, known as fire or precious opal, in addition to a few others like yellow honey opal and green prase opal. There is, however, one other rare variety which is rarely seen: cat's eye opal. This variety is likely a replacement of a fibrous mineral like chrysotile, and it has kept the incredible bright sheen that those minerals are known for. The result is a very rich, bright cat's eye when the stone is properly cut en cabochon. Though good examples come from Brazil and Mexico, most of the finest stones are found in Tanzania.

This stone has a rich golden base with stripes of white and black, with a very bright mobile eye that moves through it, appearing behind the white stripes. It is a beautiful and unusual gem.
