Years ago I bought druzies from Maxam Magnata
(www.maxammagnata.com). They were very courteous, but I didn’t buy
from them again because people kept asking me how I “glued” all the
little sparkles onto the stone. No-one believed me that they were a
natural phenomenon! They are strict in who they sell to, but they
had beautiful butterscotch and blue chalcedony druzies. It’s worth a
Diane at www.sweetgemstones.com also has druzies. And I think they
also do custom cutting. I bought some carved druzies from her and
they are beautiful and very sparkly.
Something I did a few years ago, that some folks might view as
sacriligious, is I went to a rock shop that had magnets made from
slabs of ocean jasper. I bought all the magnets that showed druzy.
Any kind of druzy. Slabs that I would have had to pay $10 or more
from a regular dealer were $3.00 each. All I had to do was remove
the magnet and cut the slabs. I still have some of that “rough.” I
got pieces with white druzy, green druzy, black druzy, yellow, all
the colors that ocean jasper comes in. I learned to cut stone on
those slabs, and it’s still my favorite stone to cut. So there’s
another idea for a druzy source.
Only do it, though, if you’re prepared to spend half your life
cutting stone! I’ve since learned that it’s sometimes more cost
effective to buy it from someone else - I only cut now when I need
Just my two cents’ worth,
