Dendritic Agate in 14k gold and silver
One of a kind Dendritic Agate set in a 14k gold bezel on a sterling silver backplate with a cast twig band. This beautiful example of a natural occurrence in stone looks like a painting but it really is the result of dendrites of manganese threading their way through quartz. This stone measures 16mm x 10mm and the 14k gold bezel surrounding it is 3mm tall. The band is cast in sterling silver from an actual twig and has all the texture and detail you would expect from the real thing. This ring is a size 7.5 and due to the texture of the band, can't be stretched. If this is not your size, I have a large collection of dendritic agates and would be happy to send you a photo to choose your own for a custom sized ring.
Agates are a variety of Chalcedony which is a part of the Quartz family. The inclusions are the result of iron oxide or manganese oxide. Iron oxides result in the orange to red color and manganese oxides create black designs. These feathery inclusions are called dendrites.
Agates are the mystical birthstone for September and are also the birthstone for the Zodiac sign of Gemini. The energies of the stone are said to be good for the skin and eyes. Dendritic Agate is known as the Stone of Plentitude. It is said to bring abundance and is associated with the ancient Greek dryads, which were woodland and tree spirits.
