Mookaite is a gorgeous opaque stone, in an unusual mix of fiery and earthy tones - burgundy, pink, yellow, cream, brown and purple. It is a kind of Jasper, found only in the Kennedy Ranges of Western Australia in outcroppings near Mooka Creek, the area for which it is named. The Aboriginal term “Mooka” means “running waters” and refers to the numerous springs that feed into this area.
Mookaite has two key sets of qualities. Firstly, it is associated with Earth, and this makes it a great stone for boosting your confidence (we all feel more confident when well supported and grounded - with solid ground under our feet) and also for focus - again, it’s much easier to maintain focus when you’re rooted and grounded.
But Mookaite is also a Firey stone, and this makes it useful for when you need to have increased purpose and direction, or when you need passion and drive. Fire is an element of change; the destruction of one state in exchange for a new one.
This combination of groundedness and passion, of confidence and renewed purpose, make Mookaite an excellent stone for decision making and motivation. An ideal stone to use when you are in the midst of a big life change, whether in your career or maybe a relocation, or really any kind of new start. Mookaite will bolster your intentions and make it easier to accept the change and meet it face on with quiet confidence and grace.
