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.
