My friend wanted to call this “licorice rock candy” but opted out incase anyone tried to bite down on it. This dark, almost black quartz comes alive in its exposed crystals. I added a sapphire that shines blue in the light for a little pop of color
The word “drusy,” is a mineralogical term used as both a noun and an adjective. The noun refers to a mineral coating of thin layers of tiny, tightly-packed crystals that resemble glittering sugar granules. The adjective refers to any such granulated crystal layers in reference to a given mineral; in this case, drusy quartz. Drusy quartz is usually found in the inside of geodes.
