Cat's Eye Gemstone Benefits | Cat's Eye Astrological Benefits | Ketu Stone Benefits

In Vedic Jyotish astrology, cat's eye (chrysoberyl) is associated with Ketu, the other celestial entity (together with Rahu), a shadowy planet, but in reality a mathematical point of intersection of Moon's and Sun's paths. Ketu, the descending node of the Moon is represented by the cosmic color infra-red, and belongs to the Air element. 

Like the eye of a cat or a panther, cat's eye chrysoberyl seems almost supernatural in origin. How could something so feline be mineral and not animal? Cat's-eye is a variety of chrysoberyl which has a distinct band of light across its face, which sweeps from side to side. It is recognized in all ancient cultures as powerful talisman that can direct fortune.
