In geology, druzy (or sometimes spelt Drusy) refers to the fine coating of crystals which naturally occur inside a rocks fractured surface. Generally it is possible to find druzy gemstones in a place where water can collect and evaporate on the rock. It has a beautiful sparkling appearance due to the tiny crystals, and is much prized by jewellers.
