Not All Drusies Are Created Equal

Ever wonder why some necklaces or druzy pendants are priced at hundreds of dollars while others can be purchased for less than 10 dollars? Well let me tell you……

It’s all about one single simple little word that is either included or not in the description of the piece, and that’s the word “Natural”. If you don’t see this word in the description of the druzy you are considering, then be assured, that a slab of stone has been put through a process. Epoxy glue has been spread on it like peanut butter on toast, followed by a sprinkling of broken bits of crystals. “Et Voila” a man made druzy is born.

Natural occurring druzy at its most valuable is when crystals form in nature on an already celebrity stone such as Garnet, Carnelian, Vanadinite, Ocean Jasper and ooohhhh weakening at the knees just thinking about the ocean blue dips and waves of Chrysocolla.

Of course there are other factors that determine the price of a druzy but not one as such as when it’s natural versus man made. You know the saying, if it’s too good to be true…..

I have a great love for druzy. It’s a spectacular and awesome display of nature’s handiwork that could be brought home with you. In the years gone by I have sold many pieces that I still enjoy to remember with photos, and am happy to have come by such beautiful stones. I’m glad to say they were sold to people that truly valued them; some have even been serious stone collectors. Displayed for enjoyment is a gallery of some of my sold pieces.

Interesting! I guess that's something I never really considered before.
