100% natural polished Mookaite beads.
Prior to becoming a stone, Mookaite was a deep oceanic bottom-mud made up of skeletal fragments from marine microorganisms. Over millions of years and with sea-level change the siliceous ooze was cemented together forming Mookaite.
The word Mookaite originated from the Aborigines, and means 'running water', referring to the Mooka Creek where it is found.
I purchased the 10mm Mookaite Beads because I wanted a good mixture of colors & I am glad I did. The size is great, the colors are rich, & the texture is smooth with no irregularities. I look forward to using them in my next creation!
