Caption: Dendritic precipitation in an agate. The precipitated crystals (brown), which have formed a dendritic (branched) pattern, are either iron or manganese oxide. The surrounding mineral is a thinly cut and polished slab of white chalcedony (silica). Agates with patterns like this are sometimes called landscape agates.
