properties-septairan

Septarian

Confidence, Patience, Strength

Septarian nodules are unique in that they were formed as a result of volcanic eruptions and attracted dead sea life chemically bonding them to the sediment and forming mud balls. They are composed of Calcite, which makes up the yellow centres and Aragonite which are the brown lines. The outer grey rock is Limestone.
The name Septarian comes from the Latin word “septum” meaning seven, or “saeptum” which means a wall or enclosure.  As the balls dried they shrank inside and had a tendency to create a distinctive pattern of 7 points in every direction.
Septarian (also called Dragon Stone) is a wonderful stone to wear or carry with you if you speak in public, as it gives you confidence and allows you to gain an audience’s attention.  A grounding stone, Septarian allows for better tolerance and patience, as well as emotional flexibility.  It can gauge the underlying cause of an illness when meditated upon, and focuses the body into healing itself.  Septarian can absorb your energy when held over a period of time and transmits that energy into strength when needed.
