Healing Properties of Mookaite Jasper
Spiritual: Mookaite Jasper connects us with the “Dreamtime,” a place beyond space and time where past, present, and future all meet and are one. Mookaite Jasper encourages us to be ageless in our thinking, neither young nor old, neither conservative nor liberal. It also helps us connect with our animal spirit guides and to develop our most ancient instincts. Mookaite Jasper is attuned to the Root, Solar Plexus, and Third Eye Chakras and linked to the astrological sign of Aries, Taurus, and Leo. It is connected to the element Earth and vibrates to the number 6 and 8.
Emotional: Mookaite Jasper is a very emotionally perceptive stone. Like all Jaspers, it is a “supreme nurturer,” and in the case of Mookaite this means that it can help us to see the emotional patterns we learned as children and the patterns within our families clearly. We can then choose to continue those habits or release them as necessary.
Mental: Mookaite Jasper encourages us to be absolutely honest with others and even more importantly with ourselves. It awakens our intuition so that we instinctively just “know” what we need to do. Mookaite Jasper can be especially helpful when dealing with aging relatives or to help us become the Elder that our family and community needs.
Physical: Mookaite Jasper is said to help stimulate circulation and increase physical energy. It is also thought to strengthen the immune system, act as a detoxifying agent and soothe the nerves. It has been used to assist the sexual organs to help provide increased physical pleasure and fertility. It has been said to counter the physical effects of aging, making us look “ageless”.
Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.
Mineralogy of Mookaite Jasper
Color: Red, yellow, purple
Location: Jasper is found throughout the world, but the variety known as Mookaite Jasper is found only in western Australia.
Rock Family: True Jasper is a Silicate mineral. But many silicate rocks are called by trade names that include the word “jasper”. Mookaite is actually a sedimentary rock. As an easy way to understand the difference, think of rocks as being like cookies and minerals as being the ingredients which make up those cookies. Many different minerals are used to create a rock! Mookaite Jasper is mostly Radiolarite which has been “silicified” by Quartz.
Formation: Mookaite is primarily composed of Radiolarite which has been silicified within siltstone.
Mining: Mookaite Jasper is found only in the Kennedy Ranges of Western Australia, near the Mooka River from which it takes its name.
Enhancements: All varieties of Jasper are fully natural, enhanced only by tumbling, cutting, and polishing.
Synonyms: Mookite, Mook, Moakite, Moukite, Mookalite and Mookerite are all mis-spellings. The correct name, Mookaite, comes from the Mooka River where the stone is mined.
History of Mookaite Jasper
The name “Jasper” is a generic name given to any spotted stone as well as most semi-transparent or opaque Chalcedony. As a result, it can be difficult to know exactly which stone is being referenced in ancient and medieval writings. Mookaite Jasper is a form of red and yellow Jasper, which is found only in Australia.
Australian Aboriginals considered Mookaite Jasper to be a stone of Mother Earth with great healing powers.

I first met the owner of the Hong Kong tumbling company at the 2014 Tucson Gem and Mineral Show. A language barrier coupled with the quick pace of the gem show, makes it difficult to discuss sensitive or complicated topics. Every year I speak with the owner, often asking questions about the same stones, but getting slightly different answers. The communication problem makes me highly selective about which stones I will buy from her. If the stone is from mainland China, and I can independently determine its likely mining origin, I will buy it since short supply chains are important. If a stone is from another country, I am more cautious.
