A beautiful member of the Jasper family, Mookite is truly breathtaking. It has many different colours ranging from pale sweetheart pinks to vibrant sunset yellows, often in banded formations across the gemstone. The patterns on Mookite are sometimes described as similar to contemporary oil paintings, and have a warm, earthy flood of colours.
The look of Mookite is unique and is only found in one location in the world: Mooka Creek in Western Australia. Mookite, or Mookaite Jasper as it is sometimes referred to, is actually a ferrous sedimentary rock and is made up of microscopic creatures that have been fossilised and cemented into rock by silica.
Mookite is said to be a motivator and imparts the desire to try new experiences. It is also said to boost the immune system and assists in healing broken hearts.
