Inside Buddy Foster's World
Today’s word is chatoyant.
chatoyant [cha·toy´·ant] (adjective)
Chatoyant means having a changeable luster or color with an undulating narrow band of white light, similar to a cat’s eye. It is derived from the French word chatoyer which means to shine like a cat’s eyes. And, of course, chat is the French word for cat.
Cat’s eyes are incredible. Not only are we able to see at night but our eyes glow in the dark. My eyes are hazel but some cats have yellow, green, copper, blue or other colours.
Some jewels have a lustre which can be compared to a cat’s eyes. The man has a tiger eye ring which is a chatoyant gemstone.
Here is a picture of a tiger eye stone. Can you see how it resembles a cat eye?
