Druzy – do you like it?

What Exactly is Druzy?

Druzy quartz is made up of many tiny crystals and it has a velvety and soft appearance to it. There can be large formed crystals or many medium crystals with the formation. Treated colorful crystals are sometimes coated with a film of gold, platinum, sterling silver, or titanium. When the Druzy has titanium on it, this adds cobalt, purple, or various rainbow colors.

In geology, druse refers to a coating of fine crystals on a rock fracture surface.  Druse occurs worldwide; the most common is perhaps quartz druse.  Generally, it is possible to find druzy natural gemstones in any location in which there is a place for water to collect and evaporate on rock. It most often appears along river beds and shorelines. 

Using Druzy in Jewelry

I really love druzy for the sparkle it adds.  It is very distinctive.  And sometimes it adds a flair in the piece of jewelry I’m creating.  It is also cheaper than some other gemstones, so that is also a benefit.

These are earrings I made a few years back.  I just got some more druzy so this fall I’ll have them in my shop again.
