Dendritic agate is not banded, and therefore not strictly an agate, although still referred to as such. It's a mineral of the quartz family. It is clear to milky white, with dendritic inclusions of manganese or iron that has grown into patterns similar to trees, seaweed, or lightning strikes. The Ancients believed it to aid in agricultural success, burying it in the soil where crops were planted and using as an amulet when journeying across land.
This particular piece reminds us of the ocean floor, with fronds of seaweed and little fish and shells on a bed of sandy colored quartz. Set in buttery 14k yellow gold and wrapped in a chain detail, this is a tiny work of natural art! Perfect for a lover of the sea, or someone looking for a unique finishing touch to their look.
