Looking for a new favorite gem? We’ve got one for you! Dendritic agate is a unique gem with nature-like formations, and we are completely obsessed.
What do we mean by nature-like formations? Well, each Dendritic Agate is composed of inclusions that almost look like fossils or tree branches. These inclusions are actually just traces of manganese or iron within the gem and are typically black to brown in coloring, standing out against the gem which can be light, foggy tones anywhere from clear to white-grey. The dendritic portion of the gem’s name comes from these inclusions, which are commonly called ‘dendrites’.
While this variety of chalcedony is rare, it can be found in many places around the world. Specifically, this gem can be found within most chalcedony deposits. From the United States to Mongolia, this gem can form just about anywhere.
We love this gem for its unique formations, but even more for its healing properties! This gem increases self-confidence by allowing you to self-analyze and accept yourself for who you are, which is a motto we live by! With a stronger sense of self-confidence and power, you will be ready to create, discover, and manifest the life you want to live.
This gem also helps you feel closer to nature. The formations give the impression that nature is always around us, even when we are hard at work in the studio or tucked away in an office. Whether you love the snowy slopes or the canyon in the summertime, dendritic agate will be the nature inspo for your pieces.
