Mookaite Jasper Cabochons
Mookaite Jasper (sometimes spelled Mookite, or just called Mook Jasper) is a colorful semi precious gemstone Jasper from Western Australia. The Mookaite semi precious gemstone cabochons are a warm flood of reds, yellows, purples and browns. Mookaite Jasper is formed as a sediment in erosion zones and as a filler in cracks.
In Australia, Mookaite is considered to be a healing stone that bestows strength. It is said to shield the wearer of Mookaite cabochons from difficult situations and to connect us to loved ones who have passed away.
Mookaite Jasper is named for where it 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. According to locals, the Aboriginal word "mooka" means "running waters", no doubt in reference to the many fresh water springs that feed Mooka Creek.
Metaphysical Properties: Mookaite Jasper is said to help counter the effects of aging! This gemstone is believed to bring us into the "here and now," aiding with problem assessment and decision making. It is also said to be beneficial to pregnant women.
