Although the dendritic pattern appears as a fossilized plant, it is really inorganic manganese oxide. When moisture and iron mix, the result is oxidation, better known as rust. Oxidation is an every day occurrence. It even happened in gemstones. Traces of moisture and iron or manganese were trapped inside quartz, which produced stains resembling trees or branches called dendrites. The word Dendrite comes from the Greek word “dendron” meaning tree. Hence the name Dendritic or Dendrite Quartz. [Minerals-n-More]
