Mookaite Jasper is 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 was formed as the skeletal remains of radiolaria, microscopic protozoa with a hard silica shell, were deposited over millennia as sediment in shallow areas of sea beds. As waters receded, the remains were solidified by additional silica carried in groundwater, along with minerals that produced its beautiful combinations of red, burgundy, mustard-yellow, cream, white, brown, mauve and purple. Use Mookaite Jasper to connect with elemental Earth powers for increasing self-confidence, self-worth, and to realize one’s full potential. Press a Mookaite palm stone against the upper stomach to activate the Solar Plexus Chakra, the seat of will and personal power.
Mookaite emanates the energy of animal knowing, or instinct, and may be used to amplify one’s own instincts when making decisions, especially when there are conflicting factors to consider. Hold the stone close to receive a gut answer and go with it, even if circumstances suggest otherwise. Mookaite also brings assistance in “knowing” the right direction to take in physical and non-physical travel.
Mookaite Jasper is a physically stabilizing stone thought to boost the immune system and help counter the effects of aging. It is considered highly restorative for tissue deterioration of the internal organs, and useful in treating cystitis, high blood sugar, and disorders of the kidneys and bladder. It supports proper fluid intake and balances mineral content within the body.
Mookaite is a wonderfully supportive stone for going beneath the surface of emotions to find core issues that are creating emotional upset. It allows for a calm and stable frame of mind in which to examine and release these negative experiences, and inspires confidence and the desire for new experiences. Mookaite makes it easier to accept change and to take a chance without fear. It encourages flexibility by prompting one to envision many possibilities in a situation and assists in choosing the right one.
