Not all Bengal cats have a glitter coat. The ones that do have a softened hair texture and an iridescent sheen to their coat. They look as if they have been sprinkled with golden dust. Any of the Bengal colours can be glittered. However, because it is a recessive gene, A Bengal must have two copies of the glitter gene to have a glitter coat, one from each parent.
The glitter gene can be traced back to India, to one of the founding cats of the Bengal breed, Millwood Troy of Delhi.
