Before I began researching this gorgeous crystal, I held the larger of the two in my hand to “feel” what I could from it before reading. I always like to do this with every crystal I write about just to see if my feelings are validated by whatever Ms Hall or Eason or many other crystals writers have found to be true. And, 99% of the time what I am feeling the crystal tells me matches their findings and this time is no different. As I held the Mookaite Jasper in my hand I felt grounded and peaceful; I felt as if I could do whatever I needed to do if I tried but a bit harder. I felt the shackles of worry lift from my mind and soul. This is exactly what Mookaite Jasper does for you. According to both Eason and Simmons, its positive energies increase one’s will and focuses one’s personal power. Mookaite promotes an ageless spirit willing to accept change and seek new experiences and awakens one’s natural instincts in knowing the right direction to take.


Mookaite Jasper is found only in the Kennedy Range of Western Australia in outcroppings near Mooka Creek, the area for which it is named. The Aboriginal term “Mooka” means “running waters” and refers to the numerous springs that feed into this area. Most have the gorgeous rings and sparks of yellows, purples, browns, and reds, however, like my larger Mookaite, they can also be somewhat duller in appearance although this one does have a bit of yellow in it. There are many spelling variations and terms for this stone, including Mookite, Moakite, Moukite, Mookalite, Mookerite, Mook or Mook Jasper, but according to the locals of Mooka Creek who coined the name, only “Mookaite” is correct.

Mookaite Jasper is a crystal used in shamanic animal speaking. Holding the crystal allows the shaman to hear and understand what the animal wishes to say. Likewise, it can be used in speaking with your spirit guide/guardian. It is a fabulous stone for pre-ritual grounding and the bonus is that it frees your mind and soul to perform your ritual with no burdens weighing you down. If you tend to procrastinate, carry a Mookaite Jasper round with you. When you feel that you don’t want to do something but know you must just hold it and you will feel the way clear to perform your duties. It works equally as well when faced with indecision.

According to authoress, Judy Hall, an amulet of Mookaite was believed to protect its wearer from drowning, and kept spiders and scorpions at bay.  Mookaite has also been known to warn travellers of dangers ahead.

Mookaite Jasper physically stabilises us and is believed to not only boost the immune system but also reduces the effects of aging [wish I had know this 40 years ago!]. It is useful in treating cystitis, high blood sugar, and disorders of the kidneys and bladder and restores damaged tissue. Mookaite is an excellent gem elixir – just wash well and keep in drinking water overnight – it then becomes a more direct approach to healing bodily functions by balancing minerals in the body and purifying the blood. It is also believed to be helpful in all reproductive matters and the elixir can be consumed during pregnancy as well.

Emotional Healing
Mookaite Jasper is a wonderful chakra cleansing stone. Although its primary use is for the base and sacral chakras, it is extremely useful with the solar plexus chakra and even the heart chakra. When I place it on my solar plexus chakra I feel the lifting of worries and concerns and it seems to help me feel like forging ahead. Mookaite also acts to stimulate your intuitive abilities, via the vibration within the third eye chakra. It is a wonderfully supportive stone for going beneath the surface of emotions to find core issues that are creating emotional upset. It allows for a calm and stable frame of mind in which to examine and release these negative experiences and inspires confidence and the desire for new experiences. Mookaite makes it easier to accept change and to take a chance without fear. It encourages flexibility by prompting one to envision many possibilities in a situation and assists in choosing the right one.
