How do you describe this color?

I rescued Shale the cat in November and I already love him to pieces lol.

I want to keep an eye out for a gem that would match his eye color which I find gorgeous and is the thing people comment on most often but I’m bad at describing colors.

I need search terms to put in google! Lol.

Also any thoughts in what sound of gem I should look at for this color would be great. I’m thinking tourmaline and amber might be my best bet right now.. maybe a some andradite garnets?

Gorgeous kitty. A light colored Andalusite is a stone might capture the honey, green, gold and red tones in his eyes. They are a bit on the softer side and getting harder and harder to find but very beautiful. Or perhaps a honey chrysoberyl which would be much more durable.

The honey colored ones have been tough to find and I don’t really know how to assess them :/. Philly gem show soon so I’m going to look there first!

Ooo. Whiskey diamonds! Didn’t know that was a term!

I think I want something with good gemmy translucency like Shales eyes. Otherwise I’ll just think cataracts lol.

I think you're already onto the right track with gems. I also want to say 1) What an adorable cat! and 2) I would describe his fur as the color of gingerbread cookies and toast. There's definitely a reddish hue if you look at his fur and not just his eyes.

Maybe it's time for some brownish diamonds...;-)

ETA
Just saw the suggestion for whiskey diamonds, so my vote is for that!

I do love cat eyes but I’m having a hard evaluating the color online. Most seem too green or too yellow.
