The term druzy or druse refers to a layer of glittering fine crystals on the surface of a gemstone fracture. A druzy is often the first visible sign that a rock formation contains crystal reservoirs and is therefore highly useful for mineralogists and crystal collectors. Any gemstone can form crystalline druzies, but the most common ones are quartzes, agates and calcites. On a gemstone meaning level, druzies symbolize the multiple facettes that every character has, and is a reminder of the uniqueness and individual beauty of every person.

It has the power to bring suppressed feelings to light and open the mind to new experiences and possibilities.
Fancy jasper is a wonderful stone to enhance relaxation, tranquility and acceptance.

Although there is no real gold in goldstone, it has always been a highly valuable stone for different purposes. The sparkles of blue goldstone remind the wearer of stars in the night sky.

It brings luck and fortune for new projects and attracts prosperity and success. It also deflects negative energies and revitalisies body, mind and spirit.
