SEPTARIA
 
Locality unknown

Septarian nodules, or ‘septaria’, are nodules containing a network of internal cracks that have been filled with minerals - usually calcite. No traces of the cracks are visible on the surface of the nodule.

They can be beautiful when cut and polished. Exactly how these nodules were formed is still not fully understood.

This specimen is half a nodule that has been cut and polished.  It is from an old collection and its provenance is not known.
