Septarians were formed during the
Cretaceous period, 50 to 70 million years ago. Decomposing sea
life killed by volcanic eruptions, had a chemical attraction
for the sediment around them, forming mud balls. As the ocean
receded, the balls were left to dry and crack. Because of their
bentonite content they also shrank at the same time trapping
the cracks inside.
As decomposed calcite from the shells
was carried down into the cracks in the mud balls, calcite crystals
formed. A thin wall of calcite was transformed into aragonite
separating the bentonite heavy clay exteriors from the calcite
centers. Because of this, the nodules are called septarians.
The name Septarian is derived from the Latin name, Septem, meaning
seven. This relates to the fact that the mud balls cracked with
7 points in every direction, thereby creating the beautiful
Septarians are composed of Calcite
(The Yellow Centers), Aragonite (The Brown Lines) and the Outer
Grey Rock is Limestone. Occasionally the fossil or some of the
fossils which started the formation of the rock is noticeable
in the rock.
Septarian Nodule: (Combination of
Aragonite, Calcite and naturally occurring concretions or concrete).
This combination is energizing and enhances the ability to perceive
higher truth and love. The Aragonite keeps one emotionally and
intellectually centered in the truth. The Calcite allows one
to connect with higher planes of wisdom. The concretions hold
energy that can be drawn on as needed.

Septarian Nodule sound
very interesting! Thank you for the information on them, Walks
With. It's great to see you...((((((((((((((Hugs)))))))))))))))
It is a very interesting
combination SM. I've seen some beautiful carvings from Septarians.
Great to read you too!
