What Is Yellow Septarian Made Of?
Yellow Septarian is a rock composed from various minerals including yellow calcite, brown aragonite, grey limestone and chalcedony and white baryte.
It originated as a fossilised mud ball, which over millions of years underwent cycles of cracking and drying out, allowing yellow calcite to leak into the cracks to form its distinctive banded patterns.
How Did Yellow Septarian Form?
- 50 to 70 million years ago, during the Cretaceous period, many forms of life were abundant in the high seas.
- Over time, volcanic eruptions killed these sea creatures and created sediment on the sea bed.
- As the sea creatures decomposed on the sea bed, they accumulated in the sediment/rock and their remains released colourful minerals which were encased in the sediment.
- The accumulation of minerals and sedimentation led to the creation of nodules, or fossilised mud balls.
- Eventually, the sea levels lowered and receded, exposing the mineral-rich sediment to the air.
- The sediment dried out, and the rock shrunk and cracked.
- These cracks in the rock were filled with minerals such as calcite which added different colours to the rock and formed concretions.
- Sometimes, the minerals crystallised and formed druzy crystals.
- This rock, rich in various minerals and unique coloured bands, internal cavities, and cracked patterns, was named Septeyre or Septarian in reference to the word "septum", which means "cracks, partitions, or walls".
