Colorless and translucent the Dendritic agate can vary from whitish and gray overtones of chalcedony quartz. The stone is identified by checking the patterned markings known as 'dendrites'. These markings are usually black in appearance and can give a nice layer of depth to the Dendritic agate.
Even though it's named an agate this stone is really not a true agate as these stones don't have the typical banding found in most agate stones. The word dendrite comes from the Greek word of "tree" is used to name the inclusions that appear in these stones.
These markings are inorganic traces of iron or manganese and give the stone a unique weathered and natural look.
Sometimes referred to as mosquito stones the Dendritic Agate is very popular in necklaces as well as pendants. Known for the impurities that crystallize inside the agate, many people seek out the stones with the most inclusions or markings for that unique appeal.
This agate stone is unique in that many people prefer to use them as decorations in free-form slabs. Because of the nature of these inclusions it can be difficult to cut these stones into a specific shape.
Although these shapes for custom rings and settings can be done, usually they require a skilled cutter who can peel back layers of the stone carefully. Carefully crafted and built to be unique, each piece of our Dendritic Agate jewelry is handcrafted and made to be one of a kind.
