Dendrite is the term used to describe the tree-like inclusions found in some Opals. These beautiful dark marks appear due to the prescence of manganise oxides or silicates. Dendrite Opal is usually gathered from the mines of New Mexico. It is widely believed that this stone promotes spirtual growth and balances both yin/yang energies. Some believe that it has the ability to heal wounds from past lives and ground one’s spiritual energy within the physical body. Whether you are a believer or not, it is no doubt that this stone is a true beauty filled with positive, mystical energies.
