CRYSTALS & THEIR HEALING PROPERTIES
In nature there are many instances where two or more recognised minerals blend together. it can be through weathering, such as the copper content reducing in azurite which overtime changes into malachite, a slight change in chemical composition, fragmentation where heat and pressure broke up the minerals and as they cooled they amalgamated together such as apache gold and healers gold. The minerals could be created through pressure and the gradual addition of other substances or minerals such as septarian.
A new and beautiful crystal is then created, some have been approved by the International Mineralogical Association (IMA) such as Super Seven/Melody's stone and Eilat Stone, while there is still controversy over others like Auralite 23.
The earth is a wonderful place where over eons the crust moves, pressure builds up, water moves and other environmental conditions change and therefore the composition of minerals can change. There are new crystals being found in mines and new mines being opened regularly so you don't know for sure what is out there.
It takes time for a mineral to be recognised as unique and then registered, but the trade (rockhounds, and resellers) are always ahead of the game and suddenly there is a new crystal of variety on the market and you wonder is it real, well, I try to ensure that all the crystals that I talk about on this site are real and genuine.

Septarian is a concretion of calcite, aragonite and chalcedony.
Septarian nodules were formed during the Cretaceous Period, around 50 to 70 million years ago. Sea levels were much higher then and the Gulf of Mexico reached inland to Southern Utah where many of the septarian nodules are found. They are also found in Madagascar where conditions were similar.
Periodic volcanic eruptions killed the smaller sea life which sank to the sea bed and started decomposing. The minerals in the shells and carcasses attracted sea floor sediments which accumulated around the carcasses and formed nodules or mud balls. When the ocean eventually receded, the mud balls dried out and began to shrink and crack into the beautiful patterns that you see inside the septarian nodules.
Septarian encourages you to take care of the earth - the grey concretions found on the stone connect to devic energy. This stone focuses the healing vibrations within drumming and chanting circles, and can be used to enhance the cohesiveness of any spiritual group.
