Septarian is a beautiful rock that started its formation approximately 150 million years ago when the gulf of Mexico reached what is now southern Utah. Volcanic eruptions killed the sea life and they became trapped in the sediment and formed mud balls.
The ocean receded and the balls were left to dry and crack. The ocean returned depositing more shell life above them. As this decomposed, calcite from the shells was carried down into the cracks of the mud balls, and calcite crystals formed. A thin wall of calcite was transformed into aragonite dividing the clay exteriors from the calcite centers. Septarian takes its name from the Latin ‘septum’ (meaning partition) because of this dividing wall the geodes are called Septarians. There is an incorrect explanation that it comes from the Latin word for “seven”, ‘septem’ referring to the number of cracks that commonly occur. Cracks are highly variable in shape and volume, as well as the degree of shrinkage they indicate.
Septarian (also known as Dragonstone) is reputed to have the ability to harmonize our inner and outer selves, to integrate past with future via the present and to walk the line between connection with others and individuality.
Septarian brings calming energies which have a nurturing feel to them, and can bring feelings of joy and spiritual uplifting. Septarian is used to enhance and nurture communication with groups, making it much easier to speak clearly and kindly in group settings. It is said to bring unconscious foreknowledge needed by the user to help him or her always be prepared for what is coming up.
Medically, Septarian is used for healing of the blood and kidneys. It is said to help in overall healing and health. It is also a good grounding stone. It also plays a role in rapid healing for the body and degeneration of teeth bones and muscles
