What are Druzy Crystals?

You may have recently seen that we've started using some spectacular Druzy crystal beads in some of our new pieces. So what the heck are druzy crystals you ask?


Druzy is the name for tiny quartz crystals which form within or on the surface of host stones. 


Druzy crystals form when silica rich ground water fills porous areas of molten rock. Rapid cooling of the water causes the formation of minute crystals on the surface or cavities of the host rock. 


Druzy crystals are thought to help promote inner strength, and creativity.
