A Bit About Mookaite Jasper

A Bit About Mookaite Jasper

History & Science

Mookaite, also called Mookaite Jasper, is known for its vibrant displays of red, yellow, and purple. It is formed on an ancient marine shelf from the microscopic remains of radiolarians, single-celled free-floating eukaryotes with tiny silica-based skeletons- technically making it a fossil! In fact, Mookaite is quite often "fossilferous" which means it contains fossils of other ancient marine life. It is believed it was formed during the Cretaceous Period, 145-66 million years ago. Mookaite is found only in the Windalia Radiolarite area of Western Australia
