The fossils are exposed and given a high polish to better view the creatures from their surrounding matrix.

The slab features very high relief as well as dramatic texture and detail they had tentacles and ink sacs, much like present-day squid.

Sediments continue to settle on the nodule, compacting it under their weight which will flatten it and expel water, while inside micro-cracks begin to form, amplified by tectonic movements. It is in these shrinkage slots that over time dissolved minerals will crystallize.

Its name comes from the Latin "septum" which means partition, barrier, indeed, the polishing of the nodule reveals and sublimates its elegant marbling of black calcite, millions of years that offer these sumptuous minerals, each piece is unique!
