One of a few jumbo mookaite pebbles that we currently have available all of which were individually chosen during a recent buying trip to South Africa. Having spent over an hour looking through a huge basket that was full of hundreds of large polished stones similar to this one, we managed to find some truly cracking pieces.
Mookaite is a variety of jasper which can only be found in Australia. Named after the area where it's found, mookaite is not an official name but one that's widely used and recognised around the world. Windalia Radiolarite as it's officially known is a sedimentary rock that's made up of minute aquatic organisms. As the radiolaria organisms died and the ancient seas receded, this colourful stone began to form.
This relatively large and highly polished mookaite pebble would be an excellent introduction for kids to the world of crystals, rocks and minerals and it may also be a great piece to use in conjunction with an alternative therapy such as crystal healing.
