Drusy Gemstones

Natural drusy cabs

Drusy gems (also called “druzy” or “druze”) are cabochons with a natural micro-crystalline surface deposited on a mineral matrix. The matrix may be the same mineral as the crystalline surface, or an entirely different mineral. Many types of drusy are natural and untreated, though quartz drusy is sometimes dyed.  They can also be enhanced with a colored metallic coating such as gold or titanium.
