History of Mookaite Jasper
This crystal can only be found in Western Australia in the outskirts of Mooka Creek, about 600 miles north of Perth, hence the name Mookaite. An Aboriginal Mother Earth stone, the word “Mooka” refers to “running waters,” pointing to the many natural springs found in the area of its origin. It goes by many names: Mookaite, Mook Jasper, Moukite, Mookalite, or just Mook. However, the locals of Mooka Creek named it “Mookaite” so that is the correct term for the stone.
The mesmerizing stone is formed in a special way: “as the skeletal remains of radiolaria, microscopic protozoa with a hard silica shell were deposited over millennia as sediment in shallow areas of sea beds. As waters receded, the remains were solidified by additional silica carried in groundwater, along with minerals that produced its beautiful combinations of red, burgundy, mustard-yellow, cream, white, brown, mauve, and purple,” according to Outback Mining.
The Many Colors of Mookaite
You can easily see the gorgeous variety of colors in a Mookaite stone. You’ll typically find shades of delectable brown, reminiscent of caramel and chocolate candies as well as deep reds. Each color you see has its own special meaning and purpose.
