Mookaite is the name given to a silicified porcelanite which forms over much of the Carnarvon Basin in Western Australia. An Australian aboriginal healing stone that bestows strength. It helps heal wounds and regeneration. Useful in stabilising health and in fortifying the immune system, Mookaite also purifies the blood in the liver and the spleen and can help with the glands in general, the stomach, water retention and with hernias.
Mookaite encourages within us, the desire for variety and new experiences. It can make our thoughts more flexible and enhances our decision making. It also helps us to recognise that there could be several possibilities for the outcome of any issue. It also helps us to choose the best solution to that issue. It helps embrace and celebrate new circumstances and helps us when dealing with negative situations. Mookaite helps us to be kind to others, and also, quite importantly, helps us to be kind to ourselves too. It is a very protective stone, and is particularly good as an emotional protector.
Microscopic examination of Mookaite has revealed that it is a somewhat unique rock. Consisting largely of microscopic organisms known as Radiolarians, with an unusual skeletal structure made up of opaline silica. Billions of these were deposited as sediment near shores of ancient seas, together with remains of other sea creatures. When the seas retreated, these sediments were cemented into solid rock by silica, carried in groundwater, either from the radiolaria themselves or from weathered rocks nearby.
