MOOKITE

Mookaite is associated with the Sacral chakra. Mookite is a formation mix of Jasper and Opalite from the Australian Mooka Creek in the Western Kennedy Ranges. It is a locally named term for a mineral that geologically is Windalia Radiolarite.

Radiolarite is a siliceous sedimentary rock that is fine-grained and homogeneous. It has always asserted that radiolarite is found in oceanic, deep water conditions, yet it is also found to occur in shallow limestone conditions. The sinking of the sedimentation is relatively rapid. In that process, dissolution occurs that affects the mineral’s Skelton formation, developing to chalcedony and cryptocrystalline quartz dependant on the temperature at the sinking phase.

Mookaite refers to the formational pattern of Radiolarite found in Western Australian, which contains radiolaria, foraminifera and calcareous nanoplankton fossils. It has varicoloured opaline, which gives it an attractive quality for the crafting of gemstones.

All crystals belong to a different group according to the basis of the relationships of their axes. There are seven systems and 32 classes of symmetry. Mookaite crystals belong to the Trigonal system.

Mookaite has opaque transparency and a vitreous to dull lustre. The stone measures seven on the Mohs Scale of hardness rating and has a splintery, conchoidal fracture.

It is entirely natural, only enhanced by tumbling, cutting and polishing processes.
