Mookaite is a jasper from beneath a stream bed in Northern Australia. It is, like all jaspers, believed to be protective and grounding. Mookaite is also thought to be useful for Ancestor work. But, these aren't the reasons I purchase and use so much of it. It is the range of banded colors. Purples, maroons, mustards, creams, browns, olive greens, some spotted like pinto beans, some striped in contrasting colors. These work well with any natural or earthy bead from wood to bronze, bone to ceramic. I look forward to getting these guys just so I can open the package and play with them!
