What are dendritic agate’s inclusions made of? 

The stone’s inclusions, called “dendrites,” are a mixture of manganese or iron oxide minerals that were trapped inside the gemstone when the agate formed.

When a white agate features black dendrite inclusions, the effect emulates a striking winter scene of snow blanketing tree branches. Who knew that these minerals interacting would create such a picturesque stone? 

On the Moh's scale of mineral hardness, dendritic agate ranks at a dependable 6.5-7, making it durable enough for everyday wear.
