Healing Properties of Mookaite
Mookaite’s vibrant mixture of colors are connected to the root chakra (red/brown), solar plexus (yellow), and third-eye (purple). This makes it an interesting stone to work with.
On a basic level, mookaite is restoring to the physical body and is said to counteract the effects of aging, or at the very least help you stay “young at heart” and in vibrant physical health. It supports an animal or instinctual way of knowing and being more tuned into your gut feelings.
Mookaite helps you connect to the Earth and the ancestors who have walked on this planet before you. It allows you to understand and transform patterns of emotions or behaviors that have been passed down to you, possibly by supporting epigenetic healing to occur.
On a spiritual level, ancestral healing actually has the power to resolve issues within your lineage and therefore provide healing to other descendants of the same ancestors. It is one of the more powerful if lesser-known ways of affecting the global energy field and advancing human consciousness.
Mookaite as a Gemstone
Mookaite is sometimes called mook jasper or spelled mookite, moukite, or mookerite. It has distinctive yellow, brown, and reddish-purple coloring. It is found only in Australia and is sometimes called Australian jasper.
As a jasper, mookaite is a rock formed from silicate-rich sediments to make an opaque chalcedony, which is a subclass of quartz. The sediments that form mookaite are ancient sea beds that contain the fossilized remains of radiolaria, an ancient protozoa. Therefore mookaite is also a form of radiolarite.
