Druzy Agate AB grade 11-20mm Pebble beads (ETB00181)
Druzy agate consists of a sparkling layer of very tiny quartz crystals coating the surface of agate. In order to survive the trauma of the mining process undamaged, these delicate crystal surfaces must originally have been protected by nature inside nodules or within cavities in the agate seam.
To be considered gem quality, druzy crystals cannot be too coarse or large and must be in near-pristine condition. They must also have been handled with extreme caution from the moment they are recovered from the ground on through the cutting process.
