Septarian Eggs

Showing all 12 results

Septarian shaped eggs are crafted from septarian nodules, showcasing the distinctive patterns and textures of these geological formations in an egg-shaped form. Similar to septarian spheres and slices, these eggs are prized for their aesthetic appeal and unique beauty.

The formation process of septarian shaped eggs mirrors that of septarian nodules. It begins millions of years ago in ancient seabeds or mudflats, where sedimentation accumulates around a nucleus, often a shell or fossil. Over time, the sediment undergoes compaction and mineralization, forming septarian nodules.

As the nodules develop, organic matter decomposes, releasing gases like methane and carbon dioxide, which become trapped within the sedimentary layers. This leads to the formation of cracks known as septaria. Mineral-rich fluids flow through these cracks, depositing minerals such as calcite, aragonite, and occasionally barite or gypsum.

In the case of septarian shaped eggs, skilled artisans carefully select septarian nodules and shape them into egg-like forms through cutting, carving, and polishing techniques. The resulting eggs showcase the intricate patterns and colors of the septarian nodules, ranging from earthy tones to vibrant hues.

Septarian shaped eggs serve both decorative and metaphysical purposes. They are often displayed as ornamental pieces, adding a touch of natural beauty to any space. Additionally, some believe in the metaphysical properties of septarian nodules and eggs, attributing them with grounding, protective, and balancing energies.
