All over, Suzy.
Shimmery, natural gemstones…
D R U Z Y
(or Drusy or Druse)
is the obsession du jour.
Love stoned and rocked
dreamy von dreamy,
druzy doozy properties.
My smoky druzies set in sterling from Nixin ($78)
The natural beauty of these gemstones
highlights nature’s artwork.
Hard to beat.
Nicki of Nixin educated me:
druzy is an effect, not a type of stone…
a coating of a fine layer of miniature crystals
on a rock fracture surface, vein,
or within a vug or geode.
For those friends in blogland who know me well,
do you suppose it’s just a coincidence I am
drawn to stones whose beauty increases
after fracture, trauma, or brokenness?
Researching druzy further,
Laurie taught me druzies are typically calcite or quartz.
She offers affordable stones at her online shop,
and you can even specify pre-drilled.
will have you on your way to transforming
druzy into unique adornment (a trio costs around $10).
Notice all druzies
are not neutral-hued BTW.
If bold color tingles your jingles,
taste the rainbow above.

This blogger is partial to snowy white,
hushed pinks, and moonlight grey though.
Aren’t these stunning hoops designed by
Don’t get me started on hoops…
and we shall absolutely not not not
obsess about the beachy blonde’s
glorious hair color.
Not one druzy bit.
Seen enough druzy?
Designers around the planet
incorporate the stones in uniquely artful ways.

Devin’s rosy druzies (below)
appeal to the romantic
ballerina within me.
Are they luscious, or are they luscious?

Head turning Auquihato necklace from Rrunaway:
this druzy stone is pyrite (fool’s gold).
She styles pieces with an artist’s eye.
Can you grasp how such a necklace
can easily serve as an art
piece to display?
Little cutie in the photo is Rosita,
who requires ongoing surgeries, and
30% of the Rrunaway profits
pay for medical treatment.
Johanna has a great sale going on.
Druzy for decor…
can you imagine replacing a tray of
seashells or pinecones in an entry
with silvery twinkling quartz instead?
So modern chic!
(Except my mom would gasp
“SHE’S CROSSED OVER TO
THE NEW AGE DARK SIDE!!”)
From the Diamond Hill mine
in South Carolina, they recover
a gorgeous variety of natural stones,
and their prices are friendly to boot.
I’m woozy with fatigue…
and bummed I lacked
the rhymetastic courage
to call you a floozy
(I mean you could totally
pound me all bruise-y).
Would love to hear your thoughts
on druzy, lame wordplay, or
your lovely obsession du jour…
Peace to you right where you are.
