Septarian was formed during the Cretaceous period when sea levels where much higher. Volcanic eruptions and other natural events caused the death of small sea life that then sank to the bottom of the seabed. As the specimens decomposed, sediments would accumulate and create a mud ball. When the oceans receded, these mud balls were left exposed to air and dried out, causing shrinking and cracking. The gorgeous natural patterns you see inside these stones are the result of this cracking.
