Dendrite is a beautiful milky white agate gemstone, with delicate natural fern-like black and grey markings. These extraordinary patterns are created by inclusions of manganese, iron and other metallic oxides. A perfect gemstone for autumn and winter, showing off patterns reminiscent of landscapes such as snowy mountains.
The stunning gemstone can come in a range of colours with the internal dendrites appearing black, grey, brown, green and on rare occasions red! If you're after a showstopper, dendrite is definitely one to consider.
