Mookaite Crystal Healing Properties:
Mookaite connects us to ancient knowledge and genetic memory. It is a powerful reminder of the ageless spirit, and can help one to maintain a ‘young at heart’ attitude and a vibrant physical vessel. Mookaite can help us to perceive and understand the emotional and behavioural legacy our ancestry has passed down and it supports one to release and move beyond those patterns. It can help one feel a deep connection to place.

Mookaite History and Uses:
Mookaite is from the Jasper family and is found only in Western Australia, it gets its name from the Mooka Creek where it is found, Mooka being the local aboriginal word for running waters. With its great array of earthy red, ochre, purple, burgundy and yellow colours, Mookaite is a perfect picture of the Australian Outback. It was formed approximately 125 million years ago from the fossilization of microscopic sea creatures called radiolaria.

Mookaite Geological Description:
Mookaite is a form of Jasper, a silicon dioxide mineral composed of sub-microscopic Quartz grains with a hardness of 6.5 to 7. In Jasper the Quartz microcrystals are laid out in sugar like grains rather than fibrous layers as found in Chalcedony. Jasper deposits are found in India, Russia, Brazil, France, Germany, Australia, and the USA. Mookaite Jasper was discovered on the Mooka Station in remote Western Australia, which is part of the Windalia Radiolarite formation that covers much of the Carnarvon Basin.
