Home Décor Featuring a Fascinating Story
Science of Formation: Septarian is a unique geode that is a mixture of numerous minerals. This fascinating stone is a combination of yellow calcite, brown aragonite, grey limestone, and white sometimes clear barite. This stone is so unique because it holds the properties of each of its component minerals in the stone.
Revealed by Man: Septarian geodes are commonly found in Utah and in Madagascar. When they were formed during the Cretaceous Period, around 65 to 70 million years ago, the cretaceous seas were raised 100 meters higher covering a majority of our land masses today. The formations of the stone happened around the two areas of Utah and Madagascar. These are the two places where the stone is found and shipped off to consumers to use as beautiful decorative pieces.
