Dendritic agate is a variety of chalcedony with branching iron or manganese oxide inclusions that developed along fine cracks. (Although commonly believed to be pyrolusite, research suggests other manganese oxides are responsible instead.) The name comes from the Greek dendrites (“tree like”).  Dendritic agate may have fern like patterning or less distinctive spots and splotches.  The latter is sometimes called mosquito agate.
