In brief: Thick fluid
Fluid from a joint or tendon sheath leaks into the ganglion sac.
.The more water soluble elements diffuse out, leaving a thicker gelatin like substance.

In brief: Synovial lining
Ganglion cyst is a ruptured synovial capsule which is the shock absorber between bones.
The fluid leaks out and is contained by a fibrous capsule which is the cyst.
