Highly polished brecciated mookaite cabochon, hammered and etched red brass bezel on 2 strand red leather, red brass hand turned chain with red jasper triangle and coiled leather end caps, adjustable 21" to 23" Introducing Brecciated Mookaite, a quartz mineral from Western Australia, which actually owes its existence to billions of long-gone life forms. This is a fascinating mineral, attributed with grounding and promoting open-mindedness and intuitiveness. This lovely, warm, opaque stone is characterized by random patches and bands of vibrant colour, varying between white, grey, mustard, yellow, orange, red, purple and brown. Though it is often referred to as a jasper, it isn’t one. It tends to show the characteristics of either chalcedony, opalite or chert, depending on the degree to which it has been silicified, but what places mookaite in its own unique category is that it is, in fact, a silicified concentration of billions of tiny little fossils!
