MOOKAITE

Polished slice

Mooka Creek, Kennedy Range,
Western Australia


An attractive little slice of mookaite, polished one side.  Presented in a lidded gift box
  
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.
