» Beading Definition: Mookaite
This Australian jasper is a warm, earthy flood of reds, yellows and browns. 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 by some 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.
