"Coating druzy quartz with titanium"





February 8, 2010

Q. Hell,
The inside of a geode is lined with crystals. A very small section is fine quartz.This is called druzy quartz.I buy druzy from a fellow in South America.I would like to know or find out how you coat the druzy quartz with titanium which makes lovely jewelery.
Thanks for any info you could give me.
Thank You.

A. Sir:

I have cut some geodes in half and then put them into a bucket of 50/50 HCl (muratic acid). This dissolves out the calcite leaving some very nice crystals behind to work with. I do not know how to do titanium plate.
