Septarian is one of the most beautiful and interesting stones that you will see. That’s because no two stones look exactly the same. Each septarian specimen is unique with an ancient quality. Septarian is also known as Dragon Stone because of its appearance reminiscent of dragon eggs.
When Wearing Septarian as jewellery, it is important that you keep it close to your body so that you will always be in your septarian’s vibrational fields. So I have made this magnificent piece into one of my favourite jewellery creations, a lovely wrist cuff in solid sterling silver. The stone is a whopping 91.36ct from Madagascar, AAA quality with an excellent polish and no treatment.

Septarian specimens are believed to have formed during the Cretaceous period when sea levels were much higher. As the specimens decomposed, sediments would accumulate and create a nodule or mud ball. When the oceans eventually receded, these mud balls were left exposed to the air and dried out, causing shrinking and cracking. The beautiful patterns you see inside septarian nodules are the result of this cracking.
Septarian Metaphysical Properties
These ancient stones have a plethora of metaphysical abilities. Many people believe septarian to be a healing stone as well as a protective stone. Septarian nurtures and grounds the wearer, bringing about feelings of happiness and understanding. This versatile stone is also a speaking stone that is said to improve communication skills of the holder. Septarian is associated with the lower chakras: root, sacral and solar plexus.
Septarian Geological Properties
Septarian specimens are geodes that are a combination of yellow calcite, brown aragonite, grey limestone and white or clear barite. The word septarian comes from the Latin word "septum," meaning "partition." Septarian nodules contain angular cavities as a result of cracking, which are called septaria and create divisions throughout the stone. These unique septaria can be any length and each septarian can have many different cracks. Calcite leeches into the cracks of septarian to form calcite crystals on a layer of aragonite, which is on bentonite clay. Eventually, bentonite is replaced with limestone, resulting in the nodule turning to stone
Septarian stones are found along the Gulf of Mexico, all the way inland to Southern Utah. Other specimens have been discovered along Madagascar where water levels similarly receded.
