Septarian Egg

Stone: Black Septarian (Sedimentary rock and Calcite)
Size: 4" x 3"
Septarian nodules were created as a result of volcanic eruptions over 50 million years ago.  Sediment formed around sea life creating mud balls that over time crack and develop calcite crystals which turn into aragonite.  The balls would generally crack in seven directions thus the name septarian for the Latin word for seven, septem.  Septarian is rated at a 3.5-4 on the Mohs hardness scale. Septarian is thought to be a healing stone for overall health and well being.
Each piece is similar, though no item at Crystal Joys is exactly the same as every item uses a unique stone that is non-fabricated.  Every item at Crystal Joys is truly "one of a kind".  Slight variations in color, size and bead shape exist.
