PRODUCT INFORMATION


General Description

Moralambo is fairly remote town 200km SSE of the capital of Madagascar, Antananarivo. It is well known for its complex agate deposits. Dendritic formations can occur in a wide range of geological conditions. However the occurrence of them as inclusions of quartz, and/or agate are certainly the most desirable. A stone is "dendritic" when it has a clear inclusion of exterior crystalline exposure of Manganese Oxide which has crystallized in a multi-branching tree-like pattern. This pattern often misinterpreted as plant fossil. Dendrites form as water rich in Manganese and Iron flows along tiny cracks between layers and cracks within the quartz. Very rare and very beautiful. Price is grade dependent. Items are as shown.
