Yellow Septarian Flame Shape 11.2cm
Yellow Septarian Flame Shape, crystal for sale from Madagascar. This beautiful 11.2cm tall Yellow Septarian crystal dates from the Cretaceous period. It originated as a fossilised mud ball, which over millions of years underwent cycles of cracking and drying out, allowing calcite to leak into the cracks to form the distinctive banded patterns displayed in this unique stone. The stone has been carefully hand-polished to enhance the rich, earthy grey-brown and yellow tones present in the crystal, and has been carved by artisans into a striking flame shape. This particular piece is mostly smooth and shiny, but some of its contours display natural rough spots where the intriguing inner crystal is exposed. Ideal for the collector or as an impressive interior decor piece.
