A stunning set of Druzy earrings from the Egret collection. Each Druzy is a lovely shade of peacock navy blue and has been bezel set into 14ct gold vermeil. The druzies feature tightly packed crystal formations over the entire surface of the stone.
As these are natural stones, each earring varies a little in colour.
Druzy Quartz is a thin layer of quartz crystals covering the surface of a host stone. One good example of druzy is the crystals filled inside the cavity of a geode.
The term "Druzy" refers to the tiny crystal which is formed within or on the surface of on another stone in a large number. When the ground water that carries dissolved silica is forced into a porous area of rock, rapid cooling occurs and it causes the formation of minute crystals. Druzy Quartz is said to aid in balancing and increasing energy. It is believed by some to enhance natural extrasensory perception abilities.
