Description

• Septarian Dragon Eggs, also known as Septarian nodules, were formed around 50 to 70 million years ago as a result of volcanic eruptions. Dead sea life was chemically attracted to the sediment around it forming mud balls which, when the ocean receded, dried up. Due to their bentonite content they also shrank in size, creating the cracks inside
• They are composed of Calcite, which makes up the yellow portion, aragonite which make up the brown lines, and limestone which is the outer gray portion
• Septarian comes from the Latin “septem” meaning seven because the mud balls tended to crack in 7 points in every direction, creating the distinct pattern these nodules exhibit. These are natural specimens so variations in shape, pattern and color should be expected
• Can range in size from approximately 1.5-2″ long and .5-.75″ tall measured from the longest possible points
• You will receive one stone similar to the reference specimens
