Dendrites are a colorless or off-white chalcedony version.
The crystal structure of dendrites is trigonal. Mostly fern-shaped drawings are found on them. We cannot call it agate because its pattern is not banded. They occur with other chalcedones. Despite their plant design, they are not organic compounds. They are formed on fine fission surfaces from the crystal structures of scrap solutions of adjacent rocks. Dendrites are another name for mocha, which it received from a port city in Yemen, through which it was transported to Europe. Rarely are more beautiful pieces polished.
