This 18k yellow gold hand fabricated setting beautifully shows off the front and back of this very fine, natural dendritic agate specimen. Multi colored dendritic agates are especially rare and this one shows off it’s floral pattern in a range of reds, orange, yellow and browns. The stone measures approximately 1 1/4” x 1”. The pendant measures approximately 1.5” x 1.5”& is set in a gracefully elegant 18k gold twist bale setting. The pendant hangs from an 18” 18k yellow gold chain. The chain can be clasped anywhere along it’s length to wear longer or shorter.
Dendrites (Greek for plant-like) are inclusions that appear organic due to their plant like structure. Trace amounts of manganese and iron in solution from neighboring rock gain access to forming agate. The elements, after seeping thru fine surface fractures, crystallize inside the agate in branching fractal patterns creating these natural, rare gemstones.
