Septarian Nodules or Concretions


Our collection of polished septarian spheres, individually and meticulously chosen by the team at Stone Mania.

Septarian is a popular and distinctive stone widely used as a lapidary material.  Its name comes from the Latin word septum meaning a dividing partition between tissues or cavities which is a more accurate description of what this material actually is.  In anatomy the word septum is the cartilage in our nose that divides one nostril from the other.

Although often described as a mineral, septarian is in fact a rock that's more correctly known as a septarian nodule or concretion. The difference between a rock and a mineral is rocks are usually made up of at least two minerals whereas minerals are made up of crystals.  The minerals present in septarian are primarily calcite, aragonite and limestone.

Septarian nodules formed around the time dinosaurs disappeared and are sometimes described as a kind of prehistoric mud ball.  They formed in water over millions of years and and geologists now have a pretty good idea about how they evolved.

Each of these septarian spheres is standing on an elegant hematite ring which is not included.  These polished rings are ideal for supporting a rock or mineral sphere of any size and are available to buy separately.

The septarian spheres that we currently have available in our collection can be viewed in the listings below this main body of text.  Weights and sizes plus the price of each sphere which varies according to size can be found on each page.  Bear in mind that septarian nodules are natural rocks that have been lightly polished.  It's not unusual stones to have very minor indentations or anomalies.

None of thes septarian nodules was bought en masse.  As with all of the crystals rocks and minerals in our collection, each one was individually chosen by one of our team.
