BRECCIATED MOOKAITE - Western Australia

BRECCIATED MOOKAITE

Mooka Creek, Kennedy Range,
Western Australia


An unusual slice of polished mookaite. It is 'brecciated', in other words has been naturally broken into angular fragments and re-cemented by quartz. It has been polished on one side.

The gemstone Mookaite is named after the site in Australia where it occurs.  It is often referred to as a variety of jasper but it is actually a siltstone of Cretaceous age that has been turned into quartz (silica), and is technically known as a ‘porcelanite’ from its resemblance to unglazed porcelain.

 
Caution: Just like flint, broken pieces of mookaite can have very sharp edges.
