Geometric shapes are evident in this septarian specimen, making for the most gorgeous patterning in this Bear by Lynn Quam. He also inlaid a turquoise heartline and friendly eyes of turquoise into this approximate 4" long, 1 1/4" wide and 2 3/8" tall fetish.

Septarian nodule is basically mud or clay balls that formed around 50-70 million years ago and then fossilized. Crystalline calcite filled in the cracks in the clay mud. Dark lines can be seen along the edges of these inclusions, these are aragonite.
