Druzy Quartz: Gemstone Jewelry, Sparkle, Color, and Value

The demand for druzy quartz at Gemstone and Fashion Jewelry is growing as more and more jewelry buyers appreciate the bright and unusual beauty of its reflective surface and its affordable prices.

Druzy is the term for gemstones that have a natural surface texture much like fine sugar crystals. This characteristic crystal formation is created by a thin layer of quartz crystal that covers the surface of a host stone. Druzy is also known as “druse” or “druse”. Many minerals are found in this form, including chrysocolla, malachite, hematite, pyrite, and carnelian. Crystals that fill the interior cavity of a geode, such as amethyst or citrine, are also examples of druzy.

Druzy quartz is a 100% natural quartz stone that has an agate (quartz) base and a thin top layer of crystalline quartz. A variety of minerals are found in the form of drusen. For example, the druse chrysocolla is composed of chrysocolla that has developed into a form of agate crusted with tiny shiny quartz crystals in tiny cavities. Pure chrysocolla is free of quartz. When “agatized” in chalcedony quartz with an aggregate of tiny crystals that coat a surface, a druse chrysocolla is formed.

The size and uniformity of the glass coverage are two important value factors used to determine the quality and value of Drusy Quartz items. Drusen can range in size from small pieces that can be turned into cabochons to large display specimens. They must be cut carefully so as not to damage the delicate quartz crystals and are commonly seen in free forms.

Calibrated smooth and flat Druzy quartz gemstones must be produced in a labor-intensive “manual process” that begins with a large number of rough rounded nodules that are carefully graded based on the nature of the crystal formations. It may take several pounds of raw material to produce only 2-3 usable stones with the flat, even glass surface needed for calibrated stones. The selected materials then go through a series of carefully managed refinements including careful hand cutting, expert gem cutting and polishing. Plus strict quality controls essential to produce high quality, good condition gemstones.

The spectrum of colors found in Druzy Quartz jewelry comes from steam coating treatments that produce intense shades of blue, green and purple and interesting metallic effects with iridescent qualities. Relatively inexpensive and beautiful when used in gemstone jewelry, druzy quartz has become a “hot” fashion choice due to its brilliance, color, and value.
