Septarians were formed during the Cretaceous period, 50 to 70 million years ago when the Gulf of Mexico reached what is now Southern Utah. Decomposing sea life killed by volcanic eruptions, had a chemical attraction for the sediment around them, forming mud balls.  as the ocean receded, the balls were left to dry and crack.  Because of their bentonite content they also shrank at the same time trapping the cracks inside.  As decomposed calcite from the shells was carried down into the cracks in the mud balls, calcite crystals formed.  A thin wall of calcite was transformed into aragonite separating the bentonite heavy clay exteriors from the calcite centers. Because of this, the nodules are called Septarians.

The name Septarian is derived from the Latin name, Septem, meaning seven.  This relates to the fact that the mud balls cracked with 7 points in every direction, thereby creating the beautiful design.

Septarians are composed of Calcite (The Yellow Centers), Aragonite (The Brown Lines) and the Outer Grey Rock is Limestone.  Occasionally the fossil or some of the fossils which started the formation of the rock is noticeable in the rock.

Quartz is the second most common mineral in the Earth's continental crust.  It is mainly composed of Silica or Silica based minerals.  Although Quartz is known by a variety of names, the most important distinction between types of Quartz is that of macro-crystalline, individual crystals visible to the unaided eye, and micro-crystalline, where aggregates of crystals are only visible under high magnification.  There are many forms of Quartz including Chalcedony, Amethyst, Citrine, and Carnelian which are results of mineral impurities or heat treatments.

Selenite is a Crystalline variety of Gypsum.  It is often transparent and colorless.  If the Selenite Crystals show translucency, opacity and/or color, it is caused by the presence of other minerals and may be "druzy".  Selenite often appears to have a "cat's eye" appearance especially with the polished variety.  It will often magnify images when the translucency is very clear.

Fluorite, also referred to as fluor-spar, is a mineral composed of Calcium Fluoride.  It is a widely occurring mineral found world wide and is often found with metallic minerals such as Galena, Sphalerite, Barite, Quartz and Calcite.  Fluorite may fluoresce strongly in ultraviolet light which may be due to the presence of some impurities such as Yttrium.  Blue is the most common color but red, purple, green, yellow and white are also frequent.  It can be used in high performance telescopes, camera lens, enamels and in the making of opalescent glass.
