BULK BUY: Dendritic Opal Faceted Rondelle Beads 1x2mm Cream/Black 5 Strands x 25+ Beads Handcut BB-SR1350
This Opal variety is termed "Dendritic" due to its internal collection of dendrites. Dendrites are fern-like inclusions of iron, manganese, or other metallic oxides that create bold patterns within the Gemstone. Typically, Dendritic Opals are cut into slices to best exhibit nature's artwork. As you might guess, these pieces are one-of-a-kinds, as no two dendritic patterns are exactly the same. Usually these Opals are white, yellow, blue, green or pink and show the black inclusions well.
