Dendritic Agate Crystal Healing Properties
This crystal is believed to assist one in perceiving the self-imposed limitations and patterns that have created our experiences. Also, it helps us to examine our behaviours and provides the stable determination to make necessary adjustments. Similarly, it is believed to provide a wholesome, truthful ‘reality check’ to bring us back to our centre.
History and Uses
This stone is sometimes called Tree Agate. Although, Tree Agate is more commonly green, there is some overlap.
This variety of Agate derives its name from the Greek word meaning “tree like”. Thus, it 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, the spirits of the forest. As such, it was buried in fields when crops were sown to ensure a good harvest. Traditionally, it had been used to support new mothers and encourage lactation.
Agate is a form of banded Chalcedony, a mineral of the quartz group. It has a trigonal crystal structure and a hardness of 7. In contrast, Dendritic Agate is not banded so is not strictly an Agate in scientific terms. In general, Dendritic Agate comes from Brazil, India and the USA. However, as most Agate, it can be quite widely found across the world.
