Everything you need to know about Septarian.


Septarian is a member of the Carbonate family and its chemical formula is n{CaCO3} p{CaMg(CO3)2}. It has a hardness of 3.5-4 on the MOHS scale.

Septarian comes in beautiful shades of black, gold, brown and tan colours. It is found in several locations around the world and is readily obtainable. 

Septarian specimens are geodes that are a combination of yellow calcite, brown aragonite, grey limestone and white or clear barite. Eventually, bentonite is replaced with limestone, resulting in the nodule turning to stone. 

Septarian is one of the most beautiful and interesting stones that you will see. That’s because no two stones look exactly the same!

Is Septarian an agate? - An agate may have crystals in the centre, geodes can have stripes of colour, and Septarian nodules usually have both stripes and crystals.

Septarian is believed to have formed during Earth's Cretaceous Period, which was roughly 50-60 million years ago. During this time, sea levels were much higher in places like southern Utah and Madagascar where this stone is found. Since much of the Earth was underwater, so were many of Earth's volcanos. As such, underwater volcanic eruptions happened from time to time.

When these eruptions would happen, it would wipe out any nearby sea life and all of their matter would fall to the seafloor. The minerals from the shells and prior life were attracted to the seafloor sediments and formed together to make nodules. Over time, as more sealife passed, they settled to the ocean floor where they would get mixed with the nodules even more.

After the oceans eventually receded back, we were left with these beautiful formations of Septarian nodules. The water dissipated and the formations began to dry. The minerals from all of the past sea life then crystallize and form Aragonite and Calcite crystals.

Our Sectarian is sourced in Madagascar, a company we work with that has been established for many years and is known in the crystal industry for its ethical sourcing and strict policies. They have run their business through South Africa for over 30 years and have managed to make it work with the help of the Malagasy community, providing fair trade and giving back to the workers for their families. The wonderful family we purchase from have also set up a network of guys in the Lapidary business to cut and polish our polished pieces. Madagascar's landscape can be complex for the geologists; before carrying out the mining process, the entire area is scouted and thoroughly researched for other local materials, habitats and trenches.

None of our suppliers work with children under age. It is illegal in most countries now to mine with children, the businesses we work with comply and are registered under the Ethical sourcing conduct.
