Dendritic Agate is a translucent to opaque member of the agate family characterized by inclusions of branch-like dendrites, which are made up of manganese or iron oxide. Colors may be clear, white or whitish-gray, with black or brown dendrites.
Often called the “Stone of Plenitude”, Dendritic Agate is associated with abundance, prosperity and growth - not just monetary, but in every aspect of one’s life.
It can enhance one’s self-confidence and perseverance, as well as transform negative energies (both in the environment and the body) into positive energies.
Like its cousin Tree Agate, Dendritic Agate has a deep connection to nature, and can assist those involved with conservation projects. It has a grounding and calming energy, which reminds us to stay connected, not just to the Earth, but to our own roots, in order to grow.
Physically, Dendritic Agate can help ailments of the nerves and blood vessels, but is especially helpful to those with neuralgia. It can benefit the skeletal, digestive, and lymphatic systems.
In general, Agates carry a quiet energy that works on the subtle bodies, and are great for achieving stability and balance in many aspects of one’s life. Agates tend to work behind the scenes on the cause, instead of the symptom, of an issue. Agate is believed to improve mental functions and can help where issues of clarity and stability are concerned. Agate is also helpful in overcoming negative emotions by bringing love into the chakras. Although they work very slowly and deliberately, this gentle nature of Agate helps them to have a lasting impact.

|Very useful but missing some information like luster, special properties, and wether it breaks with cleavage or fracture. Still very useful for a school assignment or something like that. They are pretty stones. (Submitted by: Anonymous on March 23, 2020)|
