Moss Agate Pendant
Bluish green coloured moss agate gemstone mounted in a polished sterling silver setting. Moss agate is well known for having what looks like organic matter within the stone but surprisingly this moss-like material is nothing more than crystallisation. A dendrite as it's correctly known is a crystal with a multi-branching tree-like formation that's similar to the crystals that appear on the outside of windows during the cold winter months. Dendritic inclusions as they're correctly known are present in many gemstone varieties and are often confused for organic matter or in some cases, the stone may even be mistaken for a fossil.
This is the only moss agate pendant that we currently have in our collection and it's certainly a fascinating piece. The surface of the stone is slightly pitted but that's not unusual for moss agate. As with any translucent gemstone, this cabochon is most fascinating when held up towards the light.
