    A vug is a cavity that forms naturally inside a rock as the result of geological activity such as gasses being trapped when lava cools.

    Crystals will grow inside that space — quartz, beryl, topaz and agate among them — creating spectacular formations within the rock.

    Gemologists and amateur rockhounds are always on the lookout for vuggy rock.

    The word vug was introduced to the English language by Cornish miners, from the days when Cornwall was a major supplier of tin. The Cornish word was vooga, which meant "cave".
