Druse (geology)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In geological usage druse or druzy is a coating of fine crystals on a rock fracture surface, vein or within a vug or geode.

Honestly, after high school I was pretty sure I would never own another piece of crystal jewelry. Every piece of quartz I saw reminded me of the crappy D&D store at the local mall,  gifts from my 10th grade boyfriend, and the uncomfortable Death Hippie phase I would really rather forget I ever went through. Patent leather Birkenstocks with fishnets? Yeah, that actually happened.

 

But lately I’m finding myself really drawn to raw stones and druzy .  Here is my Etsy roundup of some crystal jewelry that ends up looking modern, raw, and powerful (instead of like something I would’ve shoplifted when I was 14). Maybe it’s the lack of little silver fairies.
