Cat’s Eye Sillimanite Crystal (Medium)


Description:  This is a rare new gemstone with unique optical and metaphysical properties that were recently discovered in the mountains southwest of Sedona, Arizona. Sillimanite is a very rare mineral that is harder than Quartz crystal. The variety fibrolite displays chatoyancy, a French word meaning cat’s eye. A high dome stone cut and oriented displays the cat’s eye optical effect also seen in Ruby and Sapphire.

Arizona Cat’s Eye Sillimanite is the only known source for gemmy green and yellow chatoyant crystals. These crystals occur as parallel bundles of long slender crystals which occur in columnar or wand-like shapes with translucent ends and silky reflective sides. The parallel crystalline structure channels and focusses light and energy into travel down the length of the crystal. This is why the stone changes color, transparency, and appearance while being rotated in the sunlight.

Very high-grade metamorphic conditions of extreme heat and pressure deep within the earth are necessary to produce Sillimanite. Similar conditions are necessary to produce the mineral Corundum; the gem forms being Ruby and Sapphire. The chemical formula of the mineral corundum is Al2O3. The chemical formula for Quartz is SiO2. The two minerals and sillimanite Al2SiO5 is formed. Sillimanite and corundum both share the same properties of high hardness, high density, rarity, and display of optical phenomenon (cat’s eye and star).

The unexplainable optical effects of cat’s eye stones were thought to be the result of magic in ancient times. This has made cat’s eye stones extremely desirable even before recorded history. A stone with an eye never sleeps. It protects the holder and their family’s health, wealth, and spirit. Arizona Cat’s Eye Sillimanite has a strong directional energy flow useful to healers, energy workers, and metaphysicians. In addition to protection, the stone enhances focus, self-discipline, and keeping intentions and actions in alignment.
