(West Australia)

Named after Mooka Station in Western Australia where it is found, Mookaite can be white, cream, brown, grey, yellow, orange-red, purple-red, yellow &/or mauve. It is best described as a silicified type of Radiolarite whose silification is opaline to chalcedonic, or a dominantly massive ultrafine silica. It forms in the weathering profile of a geological formation known as the Windalia Radiolarite, a Lower Cretaceous sedimentary unit that outcrops over much of the Carnarvon Basin in Western Australia. Radiolaria are silica based plankton, and this formation is made out of their fossilized bodies. Therefore, Mookaite is a stone made from formerly living creatures!
