The rare Dendritic agate is coming from the Baikal lake in Siberia. The famous Russian jeweler Carl Faberge, who was commissioned by the Russian Imperial Court from 1885 to 1916, used dendritic agate along with diamond and other precious stones for many of his pieces. Dendritic agate is prized in Russia as a stone of longevity, good health and prosperity.
