ABC Wednesday - S

Septarian Nodules occur as spheres and egg shapes.
Once they were thought to be dinosaur eggs.
They can be very beautiful.

S
is for
SEPTARIAN EGG



This is one of my favourite possessions!

ABC Wednesday is the creation of Mrs Nesbitt.

For a sumptuous selection of S words, visit the ABC Anthology, or the Linky page.

These are beautiful! I love minerals cut in luscious egg shapes. I assume you are working on getting a Mr. Linky for the letter S.

Happy to hear that your dragons are doing so well!

I have several of these Dragonstar and thought they were man made. Thanks for giving the link to correct that thought.
