Mookaite is a variety of jasper from Western Australia.  Mookaite is made up predominantly of the microscopic remains of minute aquatic organisms called radiolaria.  These organisms had a unique skeletal structure. The scientific name for mookaite is Windalia Radiolarite. The radiolaria measured 0.1 to 0.2 millimetres and produced intricate mineral skeletons.  As ancient oceans receded they gradually died out and their skeletal remains slowly transformed into sedimentary rock. Although many varieties of radiolarite can be found around the world, Windalia can only be found in one location in Australia. Mookaite is a rock not a mineral.  These two materials are not the same.  Like most varieties of jasper, mookaite is made up of several different minerals and substances. The beautiful colours in it occurs come primarily from impurities of iron and manganese.  Along with precious opal, mookaite is one of Australia's best known gemstones.
On Mohs scale of hardness mookaite grades 6 to 7.  Although relatively hard it's also brittle so will break or fracture quite easily.
