The Ochre Rainbow Australian Mookaite Biscuit Necklace showcases the full range of ochre colours found in Mookaite, including yellow, orange, ochre, red, brown, burgundy, mauve, grey, light brown, cream and lemon yellow.
The XXL biscuit-like irregular faceted Mookaite beads are left unpolished, giving the necklace an understated modern opaque matt elegance. The large Mookaite beads are interspersed and contrasted with small, bright red, shiny, faceted, semi-transparent round Agate beads.
Mookaite (the Indigenous Australian term in that region for running waters is Mooka) comes from the Kennedy Ranges of Western Australia in the outcroppings near Mooka Creek. Mookaite is a type of Jasper which gets its highly distinct colouring from the combination of silica with fossilized remains of microscopic radiolaria which settled there in the springs and underwater sea beds over millennia.
Mookaite is also said to be a healing stone that has strength giving, wound-healing, regenerating, health stabilizing, immune fortifying, blood cleaning and water retention prevention properties.
