Tree Agate is a form of Dendritic Agate and the word “dendritic” is a scientific term meaning “to branch like trees.” It was discovered along the shore line of Achates river somewhere between the third and fourth centuries BC in Ancient Greece. The Greek associated it with Dryads (nymphs or nature spirits) and thought it to be a stone of plenitude and would often bury it with their crops to promote a bountiful harvest.
Tree Agate is a type of Dendritic Agate that contains green dendritic inclusions. The inclusions are caused from manganese and iron oxides making their way into the cracks of white quartz when it's forming and the distinct green colouring is caused from the added presence of minerals such as Chlorite & Hornblende. These inclusions often resemble sprigs of foliage hence the name Tree Agate. It is Moss Agates twin, with such a close resemblance, a big difference being Moss Agate is mostly transparent with a greyish undertone and Tree Agate is white and opaque. It is most commonly found in Brazil, China, India, Australia, Kazakhstan, Madagascar, Mexico, Mongolia, Namibia, Uruguay and the United States and has a hardness 6.5-7 on Mohs scale.
