Septarian from Morocco.
It is believed that this stone, while worn or carried, contains healing properties such as the ability to help you with your tolerance, patience, stress, anger, or emotional flexibility. Some also believe that septarian helps with depression and bad dreams and can give strength and endurance to those who carry it.
Black septarian stones can have black crystallization in the cracks and cavities of the rock. These types of septarian lack some of the minerals that give it the yellow and brown colors you see in some of the more common septarian.
The color of septarian can have white and yellows from calcite, and browns and blacks from other minerals. Septarian can have reddish and golden colors which will appear quite bright due to siderite or pyrite coatings that can occasionally occur in septarian.
Septarian or septarian nodules are concretions containing angular cavities or cracks, called "septaria" which have become filled with calcite and aragonite. A concretion is hard, compact mass of rock that often forms around decaying organic matter. In the case of septarian nodules the concretions formed around decaying sea-life in a marine environment.
