Just in time for the holidays, a new handmade beaded bracelet to brighten up your day! Made with genuine sunset mookaite and african opal, wire wrapped in sterling silver wire. Length is 7.5 inches.
Mookaite is a variety of jasper that varies in colors. It takes its name from Mooka Creek, near the Kennedy Ranges of Australia, the only region in the world where the stone is found. Mookaite is formed by the ancient skeletal remains of a microscopic protozoa called radiolaria that were deposited in shallow sea beds. These deposits combined with additional silica in the groundwater as well as the minerals that give Mookaite its distinctive colors.
African opal is an opaque stone that does not display the play of color seen in more precious opals. It does have the distinctive lustrous pearly sheen of common opals, known as “opalescence.” Its color are primarily various shades of mossy green, with some rusty or reddish brown, and occurs in a variety of patterns and combinations of these colors.
