What is Mookaite?

Although the Mookaite variety of Jasper is misnamed Chert and Chalcedony, it’s an Australian variety of Jasper traditionally used for courage, strength, and luck.

The name Mookaite comes from the Australian Aboriginal word Mooka, meaning running water. Mookaite stone comes from the Mooka River in the Kennedy Ranges, Western Australia.  

Did you know Mookaite is actually a rock and not a mineral? Mookaite is a sedimentary rock that formed 146 million years ago. It happened at a time when the oceans receded and the bones of aquatic organisms dried. 

Mookaite is scientifically named after Windalia radiolarite, the tiny aquatic animal it formed from. Some types of Mookaite show up with fossilized formations resembling Ammonite crystals.

Mookaite is often called fossiliferous sedimentary rock and silicified porcelaniteI in the geological community.

Mookaite Metaphysical Properties and Benefits

Did you know that Mookaite opens all seven primary chakras? It represents the ruling element of Earth and the Greek Goddess of Earth, Gaia. Mookaite Jasper brings stability, confidence, and inner power by tethering to Mother Earth.

In Wiccan traditions, Mookaite is used for prophecy and premonitions by awakening psychic abilities. Many dark varieties of Mookaite Jaspers are great for moving on from grief, loss, and traumas.
