What is Druzy?
Druzy is comprised of sets of tiny crystals of minerals that form on the surface of rocks. That’s why there are so many types of druzy — because there are so many types of stones, and druzy can form on them all.
Each type of druzy has particular characteristics, such as crystal size, luster, and color. No matter what mineral forms the druzy, the overall appearance usually resembles that of sugar or rock candy. Like large gemstones, the tiny crystals sparkle, glitter, and catch rays of light — which we think is one of the most beautiful things about them.
Quartz is one of the most common druzy types because of the prevalence of silica throughout the world. Other examples of druzy include uvarovite garnet, rainbow pyrite, rainbow hematite, chrysocolla, calcite, dolomite, sphalerite, demantoid garnet, melanite garnet, azurite, dioptase, turquoise, and vanadinite.
