Dendritic Opal marquise shaped beads in two styles: one where the beads are more spaced apart. Dendrites are the patterns that look like fossilized tree branches, hence dendrite comes from the Greek "dendron" meaning tree. They may also look like vines or ferns printed onto the stone. They form when water rich in manganese and iron flows along fractures between layers of limestone and other rock types, depositing dendritic crystals.
The Dendritic Opal beads are strung on Sterling Silver beading chain. The length of the necklace is just over 18 inches. Each bead is approximately 1 inch in length.
Our lapidary artist and metal-smith designs and creates all the art jewelry.
