What is Septarian?

Did you know Septarian crystals form nothing but geodes and nodules? It looks so pretty because they show aesthetic cracks with a light center, brown banding, and gray exterior. 

Septarian gets its yellow from Calcite, brown from Aragonite, white from Barite, and gray from Limestone. 

Real Septarian crystals aren’t transparent or translucent but always opaque. They often have a white streak. 

Septarian isn’t a single crystal but a mix of several. Hence, Septarian benefits include healing, balancing, cleansing, and strengthening apart from protection.

How did Septarian form? 

Septarian formed due to underwater volcanoes that killed marine life. In the last 70 million years, their shells settled and became mud balls that dried, shrank, and cracked into the Septarian crystal we marvel at today. 

Did you know the current concretions of Septarian took four million years to form? Its unique structure, shape, and texture have led it to have nicknames like Turtleback Stone, Lightning Stone, and Dragon Eggs or Dragon Stones.

Septarian Metaphysical Properties and Benefits

Millions of years ago, mineral-rich water seeped into mud balls in the ocean floor with shells and bones of marine animals and grew into Septarian crystals. 

Depending on the mineral content, Septarians developed different colors and metaphysical traits. Septarian is associated with the Crown, Heart, Solar Plexus, and Root Chakras. 

If your Septarian variety has more white, it’ll bring you higher powers by opening the Crown Chakra and cosmic connection via the Heart Chakra

In the same way, more yellow translates to luck via Solar Plexus chakra activation. Septarian balances the Root chakra based on the brown in it. 

All types of Septarian crystals are ruled by the same element and planet, Earth. It draws energy from Earth goddesses and teaches us to adapt to varied situations to spread harmony. 

The same is why Septarian draws from the powers of Tiamat, the Babylonian goddess of the sea, Quetzalcoatl, the Aztec god of life, Shenlong, the Chinese divine dragon, and Marduk, the Babylonian storm god.
