At the fur shop in which I work the two ladies wear a beautiful stone pendant called drusy (or druzy). I had never seen it before. It's made from the rock crystal formations of geodes.

I've been looking on line for it but the prices are sky high. My co-workers buy their pendants of drusy at the Cleveland IX Center gem shows for only about $20.00 each. I'm seeing pendants the size of theirs on line for hundreds of dollars.

Anyone else have drusy or heard of it? It is really very beautiful and unusual. It's almost always mounted in sterling silver.

Hi Rosie!!!
I have never heard of Drusy--I wonder if I've seen it and didn't know what it was called?? Think

They sound really pretty though--I'm going to try to see if I can find a photo of the stone. Sounds like somehting I'd like. Very Happy

I ordered a small blue drusy in the shape of a star on-line. I was a bit disappointed in the small size though the ad clearly gave its dimensions. Some are artificially colored with titanium oxide as I suspect my blue one has been. The other one I have is white and brown with natural coloring.

I found it at the TJMaxx store here in their fine jewelry department for a very reasonable price though much higher than $20.00.

This is for certain though, if you wear one people will ask about it.

My manager at Godiva looked at mine and said, "oh, you're wearing a geode." I told her she was right but that it's also called drusy. She then told me about the giant one that you can stand inside of at the Lake Erie island near us called Put-in-Bay.
