Dendritic formation on sandstone. These delicate paintings by nature resemble 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,” and then cut into a rectangular shape. There are two basic sizes, and each piece is cut to highlight the natural design – so it may be square or rectangular!
