Septaria

Background * History

  • The name Septarian or Septaria comes from the Latin word “Septum” meaning seven, or “Saeptum” which means a wall or enclosure. Septarian (also called Dragon Stone) is a Geode that is a combination of brown Aragonite, grey Limestone, yellow Calcite and white (clear) Barite. As the balls dried they shrank inside and had a tendency to create a distinctive pattern of 7 points in every direction. Septarian nodules are unique in that they were formed as a result of volcanic eruptions and attracted Dead Sea life chemically bonding them to the sediment and forming mud balls. They are composed of Calcite, which makes up the yellow centers and Aragonite which are the brown lines. The outer grey rock is Limestone.
