What is drusy quartz and how it is manufactured?
There are hundreds of rumors on etymology of term “Quartz” but the most accepted opinions are the word Quartz is derived from the Greek word ‘krystallos’ (ice) or the German ‘quarz’. As you know quartz is most abundant mineral on earth and found in wide variety of metamorphic and sedimentary rocks. Drusy is found in quartz geodes.
Drusy is one of term which is used by many mineralogists which tends for encrustations of small crystals. Cubic, monoclinic, polygon and others are used to define different behavior of crystals. Drusie gemstones are popular among jewelry designers and buyers. Druzy or drusy gemstones cabochons have a texture like sugar crystals on surface. Basically it has a base of natural agate and on top a thin layer of natural crystals. Sometimes natural geodes like amethyst and citrine geodes also referred as druzy. Druzy crystals are like a magic carpet on agate and when silica (sio2) carried by ground water strike the stones/rocks or deposited in the permeable areas of the rocks then formation of drusy takes place but this natural process is not overnight process, it takes a long time. All fine quality natural druzy cabochons available in market are made by CVD (Chemical vapor deposition) process in which drusy is coated with titanium or gold coating.

As drusy has been very popular stone so some fake suppliers made it a source to make money by some illegal ways. In natural process, this stone is made by a agate base and natural crystals by using chemical vapor deposition; in which drusy are kept in set up (Gas + Titanium or gold metal) and during the process the metal bonds in a way that results in color by varying metals and gas level and process timings different shades and color can be created.
Some fake supplier are supplying fake drusy which is painted on a ragged surface. They are diminishing the beauty of this beautiful stone by making some imitations. When you a warm of soapy cloth then and rub it on imitation then color comes off and sparkle becomes light.
