This is a designer piece, designed and made by Italian designer Maria Pilato.

Gem quality druzy is created when a layer of tiny quartz crystals forms over the top of another stone. Natural druzy crystals can be colored themselves or take their color from the underlying stone. The surface of a druzy is sometimes coated with gold or other substances for a dramatic effect. Titanium druzy has been treated with a thin layer of titanium to give it a beautiful color and iridescent sheen.

Azurite is a carbonate mineral formed in the oxidized portions of copper deposits.  Its crystals can take over 145 different forms and its color varies from a beautiful azure blue to a much darker blue-black.  Azurite and malachite often occur in the same formations.
