Translucent Druzy Earrings
This red and mauve stone was cut in half to reveal a sparkly lining of druzy agate inside the druzy stone. The druzy stone's exterior was cleaned up and the sawed surfaces polished. Next, a silver cap with an attached silver ear wire was attached to each half and voila! Precious miniature round geode druzy earrings.
Each agate druzy earring measures 1.54 inches long from the top of the ear wire by 0.7 inch wide at the widest point.
Each of the druzy earrings weighs a quarter of an ounce, so not too heavy.
Druzy stone is also known as drusy or druse in geology. Druzy is the layer of fine crystal points that line the inside of a geode as we have here or the surface of where a rock was naturally fractured, such as in an earthquake, or a vug, which is a space inside a rock.
