New to the Crystal Lion shop and new to the world!
This amazingly vibrant Dendritic Agate comes directly from Madagscar, where it was very recently discovered and carved and polished by hand by fairly paid artisans in Madagascar. Warm beige chalcedony is the bed for these dendritic “flowers,” seemingly suspended within the crystal. Dendritic Agate is the general name given to a variety of banded agates (in this case, actually chalcedony), but they carry their own metaphysical properties aside from what we normally consider agate. “Flower Agate” is the trade name given to this new Madagascan discovery, and it’s easy to see why! Bursts of dendrites within the stone look like a flower garden, each one original, unique, and perfect in its own way, with depths within the stone, like you’re gazing through a meadow of flowers!
ABOUT DENDRITIC AGATE
Iron or manganese inclusions in a tree-like or fern-like patterning give this crystal its unique appearance, and it sometimes goes by the name “Tree Agate” for this reason. This is a stone of fullness and abundance; it brings life, growth, expansion, and a flurry of prosperity in the areas of love, finances, and agriculture (translated in the home, this would be abundance of food, or health, and a vibrant kitchen and healthy diet). While this particular variety of “Flower Agate” is brand new to the world, Dendritic Agate has been found and used all over the world for much of human history. Ancient peoples would bury pieces in the field or garden for abundant harvests; used in magical ceremonies and grids for ushering in growth and prosperity; and given to children to help health flourish.
Dendritic Agate is an important stone of mental healing and breaking free of addictions. Its stabilizing and grounding properties help the person anchor themselves into their body, understanding their needs and working to meet them. We often work against ourselves to our own detriment, and this stone wants to help us see the unhealthy patterns for what they are. This is a stone that ushers in a breath of fresh air to stale environments; it’s wonderful for travel (especially air travel, or long roadtrips, where you may be confined indoors for long periods of time). It’s a stone of safety for travelers, and stabilizes our energy levels.
Agate is the name given to banded chalcedony, a member of the quartz family and found all over the world. Agate is found in literally every color of the rainbow imaginable, so it’s highly unlikely to find two identical pieces – they are all so unique! Metaphysically, agate is a softer vibration stone, and is highly regarded for its harmonizing and strengthening properties. Historically, it’s a stone of strength and stability – it’s grounding in a warm way, and incredibly protective. These pieces make wonderful travel or meditation stones, or to carry in a purse, travel bag, or car! It’s great to ease anxiety, stress, and release resentments. Agate is also a wonderful stone for children, as it has a very soft and subtle energy, but is still stabilizing and strengthening. It helps give one courage and dispel fears.

All stones and crystals in our shop have been cleansed with our natural mountain spring water (except for those that may dissolve in water, such as selenite) and have been smudged with organic white sage, harvested sustainably and produced fairly.
Please note that crystals, minerals and fossils are a natural product and are rarely perfect. I do my best to capture each side of each piece in the photos. They are creations of Mother Nature that have weathered thousands of years in the earth and I cannot guarantee them completely. They are natural objects. All photographs are taken outside, in natural sunlight, and the photos are NEVER altered. 🙂
