This Australian jasper is a warm, earthy flood of reds, yellows and browns. It is formed as a sediment in erosion zones and as a filler in cracks. Mookaite is named for where is was first found — in outcrops, principally on Mooka Station (a sheep farm of around 700,000 acres), on the west side of the Kennedy Range in Western Australia.
In Australia, mookaite was and still is considered to be a healing stone that bestows strength. It is said to shield the wearer from difficult situations and to connect us to loved ones who have passed away. This gemstone is believed to bring us into the "here and now," aiding with problem assessment and decision making. Mookaite is often used to treat glandular or stomach disorders, hernias, ruptures and water retention, and yoga enthusiasts use it for the first, second and third chakras.
