Description

The minerals you see in the picture are a combination of blue agate and yellow opal. The specimen was found in Eskişehir Province, Central Anatolia, Turkey, and the size of the original specimen is 99 x 103 x 57 mm.

The black tree-like pattern is called dendrite.

I bought several dendritic agate/opal in a local mineral shop in Turkey, but I felt really lucky coming over this one, as it has a unique pattern. I fell in love with it immediately as it seems like the nature did its own painting.


For me it reminds of a wizard inside his snow-white Agate cave, surrounded by yellow Opal.
The pattern is made of the nature itself, and the stone is all natural. 

For those interested I just wrote a long blog post explaining more about this great combination, and how it occurs in the nature:
