Helga – Russian Dendrite in Copper
Agates are numerous varieties of banded Chalcedony, a mineral of the Quartz family. Dendritic Agate is not technically an agate because it doesn’t have these trademark bands that define Agates. Instead, it has tree-like inclusions of iron and manganese that earn it its name,”dendritic”, derived from the Greek word meaning “tree-like”. These stones are usually white, gray, or colorless.
This agate is called the “Stone of Plentitude”. It helps bring abundance and fullness into one’s life. It is also a stone of self, helping with self-examination and the imposing of limitations on oneself.
Copper is said to promote love, sensuality, friendship, positive relationships of any kind, negotiations and peace. Healing work, fertility spells, prosperity spells, and spells to attract love.

Copper is 100% recyclable without loss of quality. There is anecdotal evidence that copper can be used in the treatment of wounds and skin diseases, as well as internal diseases, anemia, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and heart disease. It can also help improve the circulation of blood, increasing energy and detoxifying the body. It is primarily said to benefit the Root and Sacral Chakras, but may also benefit the Heart Chakra.
