WHAT IS DRUSY?

Posted February 08 2016

Drusy (druzy) is the term used to describe very fine crystals that grow on or inside of a stone.  It has the appearance of a "sugar coating" that makes the stone look like it's covered in glitter.  No wonder it's become so popular!

Drusy is most commonly found on quartz, which is formed from silica (sand) and water.  As the stone is exposed to other substances, drusy is formed.  The color of drusy can be changed by infusing minerals such as titanium, which gives the drusy spectacular colors like those found in a peacock feather.  In fact, drusy on white or clear quartz can be permanently enhanced to take on almost any color.  Other gemstones and minerals may also be used to form drusy rocks including calcite and garnet among many others.
