Agate is the name given to numerous varieties of banded Chalcedony, a mineral of the Quartz family. Dendritic Agate, sometimes called Tree Agate, is not banded, and therefore not strictly an Agate in scientific terms but is included in the Agate family. It gets its name from a Greek word meaning tree-like.
Dendritic Agate is known as the Stone of Plentitude. It brings abundance and fullness to all areas of life, from business to agricultural endeavors. [Melody, 86] [Hall, 43] It was associated with the ancient Greek dryads, woodland and tree spirits, and was buried in the fields at the time of sowing to insure a good harvest. [Eason, 254]
Metaphysically, Agate has a lower intensity and vibrates to a slower frequency than other stones but is highly regarded as a stabilizing and strengthening influence. [Simmons, 6] Dendritic Agate encourages perseverance and patience, and promotes a peaceful inner and outer environment. It has a strong connection to the plant kingdom and deepens our own connection to the Earth and our place in the Universe. [Hall, 44] Dendritic Agate helps us to connect with the Nature Spirits around us.
Dendritic Agate is ideal for examination of self, and the self-imposed limitations and patterns that make up one’s life experiences. It is a helpful talisman for anyone involved in therapy, meditation, rebirthing, a twelve-step program, or any path of serious work that requires a day-to-day behavioral change necessary to achieve desired results. [Simmons, 8]
Dendritic Agate assists in overcoming emotional boundary violations and emotional strain. [Gienger, 7] It helps heal the pain of unhappy childhood or effects of divorce. [Eason, 254] Agate overcomes negativity and bitterness of the heart, by healing anger, fostering love, and lending the courage to start over. It is useful for any kind of trauma. [Hall, 39]
Dendritic Agate is beneficial in self-analysis and uncovering hidden circumstances that might interfere with well-being. It promotes self-acceptance and confidence, encouraging the speaking of one’s own truth. [Ahsian, 8]
