This is a natural piece of Mookaite which has been shaped and polished into a lovely doughnut. Many people use this as a pocket stone or can be worn as a necklace.
Mookaite can be described as chert, opalite, chalcedony or combinations of the three.
The name "mookaite" is derived from the locality where the rock is dug, namely Mooka Creek. According to locals, the Aboriginal word "mooka" means "running waters", no doubt in reference to the many fresh water springs that feed Mooka Creek.
Mookaite is actually a fossiliferous sedimentary rock. The correct geological term for the formation that Mookaite occurs in is: Windalia Radiolarite. Microscopic examination of the Radiolarite has shown that this rock consists principally of the remains of tiny organisms known as Radiolaria, which possessed an unusual skeletal structure of opaline silica.
The average size & weight of this dougnut are:
40mm x 5mm x 40mm & 14g

Mookaite is a microcrystalline variety of Quartz, a silicon dioxide mineral with a hexagonal crystal system and a hardness of 6.5 to 7.
Mookaite assists one in reclaiming one’s latent capacity to feel the electromagnetic energy currents of the Earth and to use them in conjunction with one’s own energies to maximize the effects of one's will and personal power.
Mookaite reawakens the ability to simply “know” the right direction to take, in physical or nonphysical travel. It emanates the energy of animal knowing, or instinct, and it allows one to find the threads of one’s own instinctual capacities.
It is a beneficial stone for those interested in practicing animal communication, and it helps one to find rapport with the spirits of the ancestors. Mookaite can clear and activate the third eye and the solar plexus chakra, and align them with the root chakra, allowing for the intuitive perception of the patterns of Earth energies and life force, as they pulse through our world and ourselves.
Mookaite's effects are quickened and intensified by Moldavite.
