Septarian

In my opinion this stone is truly fascinating. I have on many occasions gotten lost in the patterns that occur naturally in this mineral. Septarian consists of a combination of Calcite, Aragonite and Limestone along with other minerals depending on the particular stones origins. It’s also known as a Dragon Stone because it’s thought to contain all four elements, but doesn’t it look like a dragon’s egg? Especially when it’s in the form of an egg! It brings to mind what I imagine a dragon’s egg would possibly look like, or at the very least a prehistoric egg of some sort. It really is a striking stone.

It’s said that this stone is millions of years old, made from molten lava melting the perfect combination of minerals to create this earthly gem. With that being said, I was surprised to find that Septarian’s weren’t listed in many of my crystal books. Not that I believe what’s written is always correct, or that its the only way to define a crystals purpose, but it is nice to have a starting point or additional information when you purchase or receive a new crystal. I’m hoping the authors will someday write a revised edition to their books to include this lovely gem.

This stone is said to be used by Shamans for grounding during their journey work. My personal experience with this crystalline structure is when once held, I felt immediately grounded and in sync with the rhythm of the Earth’s energies. On occasion when I have to go to a party or social gathering and I’m feeling a little self conscious or unsure, I will add a Septarian to the stones that I already carry for security and protection. Another reason to carry this crystal is to help boost your self confidence. Whether you’re at a social gathering where many of the attendees are unknown to you, or you’re at school or work and have to speak in front of your peers, this stone will be an asset to help you gain the confidence and conviction to do just that. Septarian’s are really just an all around fantastic stone to have and I hope to add many more to my collection very soon.

Aragonite

Aragonite-3

Being attuned to the Earth, Aragonite is an excellent Earth healer and grounder.  It can help center and ground physical energies, especially in times of stress.  It combats oversensitivity and restores balance.  If you push yourself too hard Aragonite can help facilitate delegating and help focus.  Aragonite can help rid you of nightmares and center during stress.

Aragonite transmutes energy from old experiences and paves the way for new ones.  It can help reach higher levels of awareness.  If you have feelings trapped inside Aragonite can help ease those into the conscious, it can change powerlessness into self-confidence.

In tiny mounts this mineral is responsible for the iridescent and pearl like sheen inside the shells of abalone.  It is the major mineral in the body structure of some shellfish and coral.  The wonderful shape of Aragonite can put on an otherworldly appearance that can create pictures in your mind.
