Item Description

Quartz is easily the most "inclusion friendly" gem out there. The word Dendritic comes from the Greek word "dendros" meaning tree, as the inclusions in Dendritic Quartz typically resemble plant life. This stone is what is known as Dendritic Quartz with inclusions of golden-brown Manganese oxide or Iron oxide. It's actually a double inclusion stone as it has small, flattened, metallic Pyrite crystals inside of it as well! The stone was difficult to photograph, but it really is beautiful up close. It has an "Emerald" cut, and is one of the ONLY gems of this material that I have encountered. Enjoy.
