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.”
Dendritic Sandstone at Crystal Life
We hand-select all of our stones at Crystal Life. After hundreds of thousands of years in the earth, they are eager to begin work with their new human partners! When stones arrive at Crystal Life, they are welcomed warmly by staff members and the store’s resident nature spirits. The stones are energetically cleared on a regular basis, to help them maintain their own inherent peaceful characteristics and personalities while being visited by so many store guests.
