Septarian Spheres

Showing all 7 results

Septarian spheres derive their unique shape from the original concretion process. These geological marvels form over eons in ancient seabeds or mudflats. Initially, sedimentation accumulates, trapping organic matter and minerals. As this sediment transforms into rock, gases like methane and carbon dioxide, released during organic decay, become trapped, inducing stress and subsequent cracking within the rock—creating septaria.

Through these fissures, mineral-rich fluids flow, depositing minerals such as calcite and aragonite, which solidify over time, filling the cracks. This intricate process results in the distinctive patterns seen in septarian spheres. Their spherical form evolves from the concretionary growth around a nucleus, like a shell or fossil, with mineralization progressing outward, layer by layer.

Septarian spheres, revered for their aesthetic allure, are often polished to reveal the intricate patterns and earthy hues within. From golden yellows to deep blacks, these spheres exhibit a wide spectrum of colors. Beyond their visual appeal, some believe in their metaphysical properties, attributing them with grounding and protective energies.
