Mookaite is a rare multi-colored gemstone, occurring naturally in the Mooka Creek area of Western Australia. It can only be found more than 600 miles north of the city of Perth and 100 miles inland from Carnarvon.
Mookaite is variously, and incorrectly, described as chert, opalite, chalcedony or combinations of the three. The term ‘Mookaite’ is an unofficial, locally coined name for a silicified porcelanite which forms in the weathering profile of a geological formation known as Windalia Radiolarite (WR), a Lower Cretaceous siltstone that outcrops over much of the Carnarvon Basin in Western Australia.
Mookaite is an extremely soothing stone and can help to relieve stress, tension, and the negative effects of emotional trauma. It can help you to regroup when life gets complex and can also help to enhance strength and endurance to positively affect well-being. Some believe that it helps to stimulate youthful exuberance, which in turn can help to slow the aging process. It can also promote courage to help you to face new challenges. Mookaite’s healing powers can benefit glandular, digestive, circulatory, and immune systems.
