About the stones
The word druse (Also Known as Drusy, Druzy or Aura Quartz), refers to sets of tiny crystals of minerals that form on the surface of another stone. There are many types of druzy, because there are many types of minerals. Each type of druzy has particular characteristics, such as crystal size, luster and colour.
Quartz is one of the most common druzy types because of the prevalence of silica throughout the world. Other examples of druzy include uvarovite garnet, rainbow pyrite, rainbow hematite, chrysocolla, calcite, dolomite, sphalerite, demantoid garnet, melanite garnet, azurite, dioptase, turquoise, and vanadinite.
The geological process that forms a druzy, the layer of crystals on the rock, occurs when water brings minerals onto a rock's surface. When the water evaporates, cooling occurs and the minerals are left behind to form crystals on top of the rock. Depending on the minerals, druzy gemstones can be almost any colour of the rainbow, including white, pink, blue, purple, green or black.
Druzy crystals have been used to induce creativity and relaxation, as well as to help with emotional problems. The healing properties of Druzy crystals are basically the same as the gem material they are made of. They are great for promoting natural healing on the physical, mental, and spiritual levels.
Onyx is one of the birthstones for Leo and is the traditional 7th anniversary gemstone.
The name comes from the Greek word ‘onyx’ which means nail of a finger or claw. Legend tells the story of how one day Cupid cut the divine fingernails of Venus while she was sleeping and left the clippings scattered on the ground. Because no part of a heavenly body can die, the gods turned them into stone which later became known as onyx.
In India, Hindus use onyx to ward off the ‘evil eye’ while in the Middle East, onyx is used as a worry stone that people rub between fingers.
Onyx is believed to be strength-giving. It provides support in difficult circumstances and during times of mental or physical stress. It promotes vigor, steadfastness and stamina. Onyx imparts self-control and is a mental tonic that alleviates overwhelming fears and worries.
