D is for .... Dendritic Agate

As last week's post was fairly deep, I thought I'd lighten the mood and talk this week about one of my favourite crystals ....... I am by no means a crystal expert - I operate solely on the "I knows what I like and I like what I knows" principle .... So, without further ado - I introduce...........

Dendritic Agate is more commonly known as Tree Agate.

There is some divide over this crystal with some saying that they are two separate crystals.... i'm no geologist, so I'm going with what it means to me :)

This crystal is white or off-white dappled with green flecks. It is said to encourage inner peace through certainty and bring awareness of personal strengths, creating security and stability.

It is also know as the Stone of Plenitude and you would place one of these crystals anywhere you would like to encourage abundance and fullness (I carry one in my purse...!) 

Healers would use Dendritic agate to align and correct anything with branches (such as blood vessels, nerves, skeletal disorders). 


Use tree agate for channeling tree wisdom and it can be used as an aid to greater understanding with Ogham staves as it is sometimes known as the Stone Of: Druids!

I like this stone - it's a very gentle stone, it's very peaceful and requires you to feel that peace, it's quite forceful in a very slow and easy paced way.  When I hold mine I can feel all the stress and strain seep out my body!

  1. I can see that I need to learn more about crystals. This to me looks more like a rock than a crystal. Thanks for posting because I see that I need to really start reading about ctystals.
