Here is a beautiful example of Brecciated Mookaite, in a teardrop shape. This sample is good for those interested in collecting the many forms of Agate, Jasper, or sometimes other minerals, or for those interested in pendant jewelry.

This gemstone was acquired from the Western part of Australia, so it is also termed, "Australian Jasper". In geological terms, it is brecciated radiolarite. It is generally opaque in nature, and holds various amounts of other minerals. Its name comes from where it is mined; it is taken out from Mooka Creek near Kennedy Ranges. Mooka means running water.

Although this is a cab, you can also glue on "bails", or have the piece drilled to accept a pinch bail. Either approach will let you turn this sample into a fine pendant.
