Druzy Facts

The term "Druzy" refers to the tiny crystal which is formed within of on another stone in a large number. When the ground water that carries dissolved silica is forced to to get filled into a porous area of rock, rapid cooling occurs and it causes the formation of minute crystals. As in Druzy Chrysocolla, the rock is composed of agatized chysocolla with crusts of small sparkling quartz crystals in tiny cavities.

Druzy Quarts is said to aid in balancing and increasing energy. Since ages it has been used to diagnose disease and is believed to enhance natural extrasensory perception abilities. (

I was told druzy stones can only be found in Brazil and Indonesia. This white druzy stone came from a mountain in Pacitan (east Java) and I bought it in an exhibition a few months ago. Unlike the black druzy pendant on the previous posting, the crystal part on this white druzy is rather 'soft'. Which is why I decide to make a pendant with net bezel technique and add a frame to enhance the stone.

I tried to make a sketch but haven't decide the color of swarovski and the pearl to complement the stone.
