Mookaite is an Australian Jasper and is a silicified porcellanite mineral that can also be fossiliferous (containing fossils within). Its only known locality is in an area known as the Windalia Radiolarite in Western Australia, which is said to have formed during the Cretaceous Period (145-66 million years ago). This area is full of tiny nanoplankton fossils such as Radiolaria and Foraminifera, both of which played a huge role in the creation process of Mookaite. The colors of this stone are extremely attractive and offer up someone of the brightest yellows and reds we’ve ever come across in a natural mineral. One may also find more uncommon colors in their piece of Mookaite such as beige, brown, grey, and even purple!

Mookaite has energies that enrich one’s trust and love for Mother Earth and all of her beauty. One will find themselves more aware of nature and life around them, as well as developing a connection with the animals we see each day, both wild and domestic. Mookaite grounds your mind, heart, and soul down to a planetary level and helps one truly live in the moment.
