Septarian nodules originated from the Cretaceous period, 50-70 million years ago. The name is derived from the word “septum” meaning “partition” because it is formed from mud masses which had cracks in them where crystals formed. It has inspired a curiosity throughout history due to its unusual shapes and colours and the inclusion of pseudofossils, with the first description dating back to the 18th century. It is sometimes called Dragonstone because of the Septarian geodes that are referred to as a Dragon Eggs which originate from Madagascar.
Septarian nodules were formed from the eruption of underwater volcanoes. Sea life were attracted to the molten and as they eventually died their chemical composition began enriching the sedimentary molten rock. As the oceans began to recede, the nodules began to dry out, forming cracks. The chemicals within the dead sealife began crystallising into Aragonite crusts and Calcite crystals. These crystal filled cavities are called Septaria.
