Agate Plated Druzy Triangle Pendant

Druzy (or drusy) is a geological term applied to quartz that forms a layer of closely spaced, small crystals that line a surface or cavity of another kind of rock. Drusy quartz, silicon dioxide, is most commonly clear or whitish and can resemble glittering sugar or snow crystals. It occurs within geodes and lines the walls and cavities within the hollows and veins of rocks.

Agate is a rock consisting primarily of cryptocrystalline silica, chiefly chalcedony, alternating with microgranular quartz. Agate is characterized by its fineness of grain and variety of color. Agate is a 6.5-7 on the Mohs hardness scale. Although agates may be found in various kinds of host rock, they are classically associated with volcanic rocks and can be common in certain metamorphic rocks. Agate is thought to increase inner stability, composure, maturity, protection, warmth, security, self-confidence.
