Dendritic Quartz

Dendritic Quartz


      Dendritic Quartz, also known as “Stone of Plentitude”, is the trade name for Quartz with branching fern-like inclusions. The word “Dendrite” comes from the Greek word “dendron” meaning “tree”. While it appears as a little plant is found within the Quartz, it is actually due to inclusions of iron, manganese, hematite and other metallic oxides that grow in a fractal pattern. These minerals from the host rock enter the Quartz as it is forming and “branch out” as growth continues creating beautiful formations that look like ferns or trees. Dendrites can form in other stones like Agate and Limestone.

      Quartz is a mineral composed of silicon and oxygen, with a chemical composition of SiO2. Quartz is the most abundant mineral on Earth and found all over it! Most of the sand in the world's beaches is actually the mineral Quartz. Quartz is resistant to weathering so as some rocks weather away, Quartz will remain. It forms at all temperatures and is abundant in igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks.
