Drusys are a beautiful gemstone, best known for their incredible sparkle! Making these amazing gemstones to use in jewellery making - but what are they?
Drusy (Druzy) comes from the German word 'druse' which means geode. A geode is a hollow space within a stone that contains lovely little crystals.
Drusy for jewellery making is carefully coated to give them their extra sparkle and colour.
The drusy gemstones that we supply here at Kernowcraft have been coated in the US by a world-leading laboratory using a process called Vapour Deposition Coating which uses materials such as Titanium and Platinum to give them a coating that is not only gorgeous but is designed to be durable to withstand everyday wear.
The stunning coatings on these stones range from bright golds to gorgeous shimmering blues and purples.
Drusy is believed by many to be associated with peace, tranquillity and intuition.
This shimmering black drusy cabochon is beautiful! Simple use Devcon epoxy 5 minute glue to set this stone on our adjustable ring setting for a quick and easy design.
We've set one of our sparkly iridescent white window drusy cabochons into our gallery wire settings, where all you need is a bezel rocker to rock the claws over the stone.
We love the icy effect of these turquoise drusy gemstones, we've popped them in our gallery wire settings and hung them from earrings for some eye catching earrings!
