Dendrites are crystal inclusions that develop tree branch-like patterns. In Tree Agate, these green dendrites create a beautiful green dappling effect on a white base.

About Tree Agate
Tree agate is also known as Dendritic Agate. Dendrites are crystal inclusions that develop tree branch-like patterns. In Tree Agate, these green dendrites create a beautiful green dappling effect on a white base.
This beautiful green and white stone has long been seen as having a deep connection to nature and was therefore viewed as the stone of plenitude by many civilizations. The ancient Greeks associated Tree Agate with dryads and the stone was sometimes buried in agricultural fields to promote a plentiful harvest. Today, Tree Agate is said to bring a sense of peace and inner tranquility to you when you wear it.
About Argentium® Sterling Silver
Argentium® – The Finest Silver - is a purer version of Sterling Silver that is also highly tarnish resistant. Standard "Sterling Silver" is an alloy composed of 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals, usually copper. Thus, you see "925 Sterling Silver".
Argentium® is made with 93.5% silver and 6.5% other metals, including germanium and copper, which gives Argentium® additional beneficial properties for jewelry makers. For my jewelry, the biggest benefit of using Argentium® instead of regular Sterling Silver is that it is much more tarnish resistant.
In addition, Argentium® is responsibly manufactured, ethically sourced, and certified to be made with 100% recycled silver.
