Dendritic Agate Crystal Healing Properties:
Dendritic Agate assists one in perceiving the self imposed limitations and patterns that have created our experiences. It helps us to examine our behaviours and provides the stable determination to make necessary adjustments. It provides a wholesome, truthful ‘reality check’.

Dendritic Agate History and Uses:
Dendritic Agate, sometimes called Tree Agate, derives its name from the Greek word meaning “tree like” which describes the patterns created by the dark inclusions of iron or manganese called dendrites. In the past it was connected with the Ancient Greek Dryads, spirits of the forest, and was buried in the fields when crops were sown to ensure a good harvest. Traditionally it had been used to support new mothers and encourage lactation.

Dendritic Agate Geological Description:
Agate is a form of banded Chalcedony, a mineral of the quartz group. It has a trigonal crystal structure and a hardness of 7. Dendritic Agate is not banded so is not strictly an agate in scientific terms. Most Dendritic Agate comes from Brazil, India and the USA.

Affirmation: My outer world is a reflection of my inner world.
