Hormigo Polyhedral DiceChatoyancy  is an optical phenomenon in which a band of reflected light, known as a “cat’s-eye,” moves just beneath the surface of a cabochon-cut gemstone. In wood this has a striking three-dimensional appearance, and is highly prized and often a key feature when choyant wood is used. This happens particularly where stresses from the weight of the growing tree result in denser patches, or where stresses cause.   This wood has it. Ranging from brown to red orange Hormigo is distinguished by an over all metallic shimmer.

    Thanks for teaching me a new word today!

    How well does the chatoyancy come through in cut dice?

  2. Blake

    Is the grain and chatoyance tight enough to come through on cut dice?
