Agate

Agate has the same chemical composition as quartz but instead of forming whole crystals, it has a microcrystalline structure. To be a true β€œagate,” the stone must exhibit a pattern or banding, otherwise it is considered chalcedony. Different varieties of agate include moss, tree, and lace. Much agate comes from Brazil where it is sometimes dyed vibrant colors. Other sources for beautiful agates include Oregon, Mexico, Botswana, and South Africa. Metaphysically, agate helps with emotional, physical, and intellectual balance.

Dendrites

A dendrite is a superficial deposit of manganese oxide that has crystallized in a multi-branching tree-like pattern.Β  Often misidentified as fossils since the branching pattern resembles leaves, dendrites form as water rich in manganese and iron flows along tiny cracks between layers of limestone and other rock types.Β  Dendrites may also consist of iron oxides and other minerals, and can also form in quartz materials like agate and jasper. In Solnhofen, Germany, dendrites line fractures in 160 million year old marl, or calcareous mudstone, a sedimentary rock.
