It is generally green, brown, yellow or colorless. It has a specific gravity of 3.71 and hardness of 8.5 on the Moh’s scale.

Being an opaque gem poses certain difficulties in differentiating the natural gem from artificial material. One striking difference that one can tell after some experience of seeing natural Cat’s Eye Gems is that the artificial Cat’s Eye will be too clear and the Cat’s Eye effect will be too marked. But a closer examination under magnification will show signs of natural gem-like small marks, grains of stone, and the small irregularities below the polished surface. The lower part of a Cat’s Eye is not polished and so, one can see the roughness of the stone there.
