The Drusy Cabochons are mostly cut out of the center of the Geode, which has a chamber or hollow space. The walls of this hollow space are covered with tiny little quartz crystals and these are the crystals you see on the top surface of our Drusy Cabochons. Recently natural Drusy with a very thin metal-coating on the crystals has become more popular in gemstone jewelry.
