Clarity-
Chysoberyl Cats Eye is valued for its bright glassy lustre and smooth surface, which is a result of silk inclusions. Due to this, they command high prices, while stones with high visibility inclusions and opaqueness command lower prices.

This factor is defined by the consistency and distribution of color. Honey-colored pigment stones, due to their highly sought-after quality and rarity, command higher prices, while yellow-green Chrysoberyl cats eyes have a lower price. 

Shape- 
The shape of Chrysoberyl cats eye directly affects the chatoyancy in the stone. Round and oval cabochons, which create a sharp cat’s eye effect with a central dome, command a higher price. Conversely, stones with flat domes and uneven bottoms like those lacking a central dome and having opaque appearances will have a lower value and price. 

Cat’s effect-
In determining price and quality, chatoyancy is the primary factor. The stone’s surface is adorned with a thin rim of parallel inclusions that reflect light. There are always bands of light around parallel inclusions at an angle to their length. Due to this effect, the stones become more lustrous, which increases the value and price of the stones. The price of stones is lower if they are opaque and lack this effect.
