Druse is a term that refers to any rock formation where an irregular cavity allows well-formed tiny crystal structures such as quartz, feldspar or other mineral crystals to grow. These cavities give tiny crystals a place to form over millions of years. The end result is a triumph of Mother Nature called drusy or druzy.
Druse or drusy (druzy) can be found world wide, but they are more commonly associated with agates and various types of quartzes.
