Drusy, druse, druzy, drusies - different spellings, but they all mean tiny quartz crystals that form within or on the surface of other stones. When ground water carrying dissolved silica is forced into a porous area of the rock, rapid cooling often occurs, causing the formation of tiny crystals on the surfaces or in cavities of the rock. The clear crystals often form on top of previously deposited minerals. This is called a drusy.
A crust of tiny crystals lining a rock cavity, usually composed of the same minerals that occur in the rock. ETYMOLOGY: German, weathered ore, probably from Middle High German druos, gland, tumor, from Old High German. Geodes can form in any cavity, but the term is usually reserved for more or less rounded formations in igneous and sedimentary rocks, while the more general term "vug" is applied to cavities in fissures and veins.
Bedrock containing geodes eventually weathers and decomposes, leaving them present at the surface if they are composed of resistant material such as quartz. The size of the crystals, including their form and shade of color, varymaking each geode unique.
