Septarian is a mud concretion which formed on an ancient sea bed or floor. In very rare instances fossil remains of various ocean floor dwellers may be found inside the septarian. Theories vary as to what caused crystals to form inside. Scientists do agree that the process of formation is very unusual and complex. This specimen is approximately 50 - 70 million years old.
The sphere represents completion, the realization of all possibilities. To carve a sphere one must cut away a mass of rock which can be as much as ten times the finished creation. Thus a sphere symbolizes all that we need to release in order to reach our goals and attain perfection. Many use a sphere while meditating as they believe it helps to release worry and may help to take them to a deeper state. A sphere is also the perfect centerpiece for a crystal arrangement or rock altar. In feng shui, the ancient art of creating optimal energy flow in an environment, a sphere is ideal to place in the center of a room for its balancing abilities.
A lot of work goes into digging septarians, as well as into cutting, polishing, and preparing the pieces for display.
