Cat's Eye Beads

Cat's Eye beads are man-made fiber optic glass expertly shaped into round beads by fusing quartz fibers together. The color is brilliant and the bead refracts light. Sometimes referred to as "fiber-optic", these man-made beads changes hue as they capture the light and have a band of light running through the center that resembles a 'cat's eye'.
The optical illusions within each Cat's Eye bead create a stylish movement when worn on the wrist. These beads are actually Synthetic Quartz Cat's Eye beads, they change their appearance by looking at them from different angles. The cat's-eye beads have a very definite eye streak and appear to shine from below the surface.
