Jewelry Designers are Blinding us with Earth Science
Jewelry designers are using beautiful stones and rocks to create jewelry designs. They turn real geodes—hollow rocks lined with crystals—into stunning wearable art.
So, let’s start at the beginning: how do you get a hollow rock with lots of sparkling crystals inside? First you need a hollow rock.Geodes start their lives as a hollow bubble inside a layer of rock. As the mineral-rich water moves on through the bubble, tiny crystals are left behind, clinging to the sides of the bubble.
Millions of years pass while this in and out flow of water gradually builds crystals inside the empty space. The crystal formations might become large single crystals or tightly packed micro-crystals, so small that you can’t even distinguish one from another.
Druzy is great because it is so different; it is dramatic but has a very organic feel to it at the same time. I think druzy, especially in the lighter shades, is the perfect accessory for this summer. If you're into the look as much as I am but don't want to dish out the cash for a designer piece, check out stores like Secret Garden Gems for great druzy finds that won’t break the bank!
