More Details

Although commonly confused for plant fossils, dendrites are actually a natural fractal crystal formation.

They form when water rich in manganese and iron flows along fractures between layers of limestone and other rock types, depositing dendritic crystals.

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

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.
