It is most commonly translucent, of a milky-white color, but is also found in shades of yellow, red and brown. It has always been greatly valued in India, where it is regarded not only as a bringer of wealth, but a Talisman to prevent its owner’s gain diminishing. The Cat’s Eye is also considered powerful against the terrors of the night; it will relieve asthma if hung around the neck, also helps babies suffering from croup, and it is also worn for mental balance, foresight and general attractiveness. As a popular charm for success in speculation, gambling, and games of chance, it is said to have no equal.
