This powerful "dragon stone" septarian nodule talisman has been handcrafted by us here at Platypus Dreaming in the luscious rainforests of Far North Queensland, Australia. The septarian nodule has been found eroding out of Paleocene mudstone of the Morikis, South Island in New Zealand. This piece pays respect to the First Nations elders of this land where we live and create. Black represents the First Nations' people of Australia. Yellow represents the Sun, the giver of life and protector. Red represents the red earth, the red ochre used in ceremonies and First Nations peoples’ spiritual relation to the land. This talisman features a 1000 pure silver tribal bead that has been hand-cut and chiseled using traditional techniques.
Septarian nodules have an incredible history – they were formed when periodic volcanic eruptions killed the smaller sea life and sank them to the seabed which in turn allow their decomposing. Now the minerals in the shell and carcasses attracted sea floor sediments, then these sea floor sediments accumulate around the carcasses and create these fashioned nodules or mud balls. Over the years, calcite leached down into the cracks and formed calcite crystals which grew to occupy the gaps/cracks. The interface edge between the calcite and the bentonite clay changed into aragonite which is the dark brown crystal stratum. After that bentonite mud finally replaced with the limestone which then complete the transformation of the entire nodule to stone.
Our items are created and designed in Australia in alignment with the healing frequency of the oldest rainforest on Earth.
Each necklace is handmade using the highest quality waxed cords for ultimate strength and durability. They are ideal for daily wear for active people. It has been handwoven using an ancient knot technique and is 100% vegan.
It can be adjusted to your desired length with our sturdy slide-knot clasp system. It fits both men and women.
