This type of Aqeeq, similar to Moss Aqeeq, is not actually considered among Agate stones, but is a type of colorless or white-gray chalcedony whose pattern resembles the dark or black branches of trees due to the presence of iron or manganese oxide,. Its name actually comes from the Greek word Dendrite meaning “like a tree”. If the branches of the tree are orange, it could also be called autumn dendrite.
These shapes, which are not unlike the shape of ice crystals formed on window panes during winter, do not originate from algae and are caused by the penetration of liquids carrying iron and manganese oxides, which are produced from the chemical degradation of dark minerals and surrounding rocks and is formed in thin cracks of compacted masses in Aqeeq. In the past, this stone was transported to Europe through the Arab port of Mocha, and for this reason it is also called Mocha Stone.
