The term cat's eye, or chatoyancy, is used to describe a phenomenal optical property in gemstones, in this case quartz gems. The effect, when present, appears as a bright, narrow slit similar to the pupils in the eyes of your favorite feline. This phenomenon is caused by parallel fibrous or needle-like inclusions that interfere with the passage of light throughout the crystal, scattering and reflecting light back to the viewer as a thin line.

Many modern clocks and watches use quartz crystals to as a method of helping keep time.
