Tree Agate Earrings

I just listed these two pair of tree agate earrings in my Etsy shop. It's time to think about Mother's Day, I know I am. Each pair is hand crafted and one of a kind.

Tree Agate, also known as Dendritic Agate or Moss Agate, is an opaque Chalcedony Quartz. Dendritic inclusions make it appear to have distinctive mossy or tree-like markings. The tree-like markings are called called dendrites, a name derived from "dendron", the Greek word for "tree". The ancient Greeks noted Tree Agate as a stone of abundance and would sow some into their fields to ensure a good and plentiful harvest.

Thanks for looking.
