Definitions for "Arborescent"
Resembling a tree; becoming woody in stalk; dendritic; having crystallizations disposed like the branches and twigs of a tree.
Synonym to dendritic: Aggregate composed of skeletal or tree-like formations. May be a single entity, or a formation that forms from mineral-rich solutions that deposit the mineral in rock and form a tree or plant structure embedded in rock. There sometimes is a distinction noted between the two aggregates; in some guides the former aggregate (single entity) is known as skeletal, and the latter as dendritic (embedded in rock). Other guides, such as this one, don't distinguish the two, and term them both as dendritic
(adj.) Similar to the size and habit of a tree.
