Dendritic Agate Collection in Sterling Silver
Each piece in this collection has an incredible focal stone called Dendritic Agate, all cut by GodsOwnPaintings on Instagram.
Dendritic Agate, sometimes called Tree Agate, gets its name from a Greek word meaning tree-like. These Agates are usually colorless, white, or gray, and have tree- or fern-like inclusions of iron or manganese, called dendrites.
Dendritic Agate is known as the Stone of Plentitude. It brings abundance and fullness to all areas of life, from business to agricultural endeavors. It was associated with the ancient Greek dryads, woodland and tree spirits, and was buried in the fields at the time of sowing to insure a good harvest.
