These natural Australian Mookaite beads has not been treated to enhance color or clarity in any way.
Before 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 formed.
Mookaite is a powerful and unique stone, connecting the timeless spirit with one's energies and personal power. Mookaite activates the third-eye and solar plexus chakras and synchronizes them with the root chakra, bringing to the wearer intuitive perception about themselves and the surrounding environment.
