Dendritic quartz is another branch of the quartz inclusion family tree.

They form when water rich in manganese and iron flows along fractures between layers of limestone and other rock types, depositing dendritic crystals.
This beautiful variety of quartz contains fern-like inclusions of iron, manganese, hematite and other metallic oxides that grow in a fractal pattern.
The word “Dendrite” comes from the Greek word “Dendron” meaning tree.
