Cat's Eye from Zimbabwe

This Cat’s Eye comes from artisanal miners in Zimbabwe. It may be a byproduct of Asbestos mining. The dust hazard levels within the Zimbabwe mines have improved significantly in recent decades.

This lapidary drum tumbles stones in Cape Town, South Africa. It is a family business, founded by a father and passed on to his sons. Factory workers have safe conditions and are paid fairly. The lapidary sells primarily at two gemshows, one in the United States and the other in France.

I have been doing business with this source since 2014. They are the oldest tumbling company in the world and have more varieties, in more sizes, than any other known source. The company started in California in the 1950s and was eventually bought by a British immigrant who had young sons. Eventually the company moved to South Africa in order to be closer to the source of their best-selling stone and to have the legal rights to export it. The company is now run by the sons and their childhood best friend.

The current owners personally visit many small and large mines. To connect with artisanal miners in sub-Sahara Africa, they work with local Gem Dealers who travel far into the bush to buy from part-time miners. The majority of these Gem Dealers are women. Some, but not all, of their stones are labeled with country-of-origin. For those that aren’t, I ask the owners directly. As I’ve learned more about mining practices in individual countries, I have become increasingly selective about what I will purchase from them. However, they remain my preferred source for most of the stones I sell from sub-Sahara Africa.

Cat's Eye Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published September 2016  •  Updated February 2024  •  Read Time: 5 minutes
Cat’s Eye is not a specific mineral, but rather a special optical effect that can be seen in a variety of minerals.  When cut and polished these minerals will have a narrow band of light, known as chatoyancy, that moves from side to side when the stone is turned.  This band of light is reminiscent of a cat’s vertical pupil.  In South Africa, this optical effect is so pronounced that the minerals are elevated to Tiger’s Eye.  In Zimbabwe, the same minerals that create Tiger’s Eye can be found, but the minerals are gray rather than a vivid blue, gold, or red.  These stones are called Cat’s Eye or Cat’s Eye Quartz.  It is a wonderful stone for patience and […]

    I love my ethically-sourced Cat’s Eye. It’s exactly the color of my Russian Blue cat, Arctander, who has been sitting and napping near it, quite often, lately. (I may have to buy another one!) Thank you so much for the great customer care, communication, and everything. I’ll be back for sure!
