A druzy is sets of tiny crystals of minerals that form on the surface of another stone. There are many types of druzy, because there are many types of minerals. 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. Quartz is a term that is derived from the Polish words “kwardy” and ” twardy” meaning ‘hard.’ Quartz is an igneous rock that is composed of oxygen and silicon atoms in a continuous makeup of silicon-oxygen tetrahedra (SiO4). Each individual oxygen atom is shared between two tetrahedra atoms, giving quartz the final chemical formula scientifically known as SiO2. As one of the most abundant minerals in the planet’s continental crust, Quartz falls second right behind feldspar. Quartz is chiral and exists in 2 different forms, the normal alpha quartz and what is known as high-temperature beta quartz.
