Dendritic Sandstone formations are delicate paintings by nature resembling ferns and plants. Formed naturally, these inclusions of iron oxide and manganese oxide spread between rock layers to form branching crystalline structures called “dendrites”. They are split open at these points to reveal the “painting.”

Historical Folklore

The word “dendrite” comes from the Greek word for “tree,” in reference to the shape of this stone’s patterns. 

Geology

Sandstone is a type of sedimentary rock. It forms when mineral and rock grains bind together into one solid form. It typically is found in shades of brown and white and has been mined worldwide.

When water high in metallic particles flows into the ridges of the stone, it hardens to create the fern like patterns that define Dendritic Sandstone. These patterns range in color from brown to black.

Chakra Association

Sandstone is typically associated with the sacral chakra.

Care

You can place this stone in full moon moonlight to energize. It can also be moved through sage smoke or incense, placed in rice, or buried in the earth overnight.

Astrological Association

This stone is associated with Gemini.

Health Folklore

Sandstone is thought to strengthen the bones and treat the eyes, hair, and nails.
