Agate druzy cylinders are a type of gemstone that are cylindrical in shape and feature a surface that is covered in tiny, sparkling crystals. Agate is a variety of chalcedony, a mineral in the quartz family, and it is known for its wide range of colors and intricate banding patterns. Druzy refers to a coating of tiny crystals that form on the surface of a mineral, creating a glittering effect.
Agate druzy cylinders are typically cut and polished from a larger piece of agate that has been hollowed out, leaving a cylinder-shaped cavity. The surface of the cylinder is then coated in druzy crystals, which can be white, black, brown, or a range of other colors, depending on the specific type of agate utilized.
