Dendritic Agate is thought to have been discovered between the 3rd and 4th Centuries BC, over 3,000 years ago. A type of Chalcedony, a variety of Quartz, Dendritic Agate is a colourless or off-white grey translucent quartz that has the most remarkable little tree-like inclusions which are known as dendrites (from Greek – tree-like). Hence the name, Dendritic Agate. These dendrites are created as iron or manganese (generally brown or black oxides) grows within the Quartz as a visible and pattern-creating inclusion. Scientifically, it is not strictly an Agate yet sits within the Agate family.
Known in healing practises as the stone of platitude Dendritic Agate creates a peaceful environment and encourages us to be in the moment & enjoy being present. It is not surprising that it can be associated with the Root Chakra as it deepens our connection to mother earth. It is also used in practise to balance the Heart & Crown Chakra and evoke in us an understanding of our own needs and emotions with clarity.
Also know as a stone of plenitude, this fern-like beauty brings good luck and is a powerful healer, encouraging honesty, truth and helping to foster love.
