Geology of Mookaite
Mookite is a type of Jasper that is only found in Western Australia.
It’s often referred to as a form of chert, chalcedony, or opalite, but this would be incorrect. More specifically, in Kennedy Range National Park, Western Australia, in Mooka Creek. That is where the material derives its name from given to it by the indigenous people that inhabited the area when first discovered.
Mookaite is composed of microscopic remains of radiolarians, and because of this, is more accurately a type of Radiolarite.
It is incorrect to label Mookaite as a type of chert, chalcedony, or opalite.
Radiolarians are defined as protozoa of diameter 0.1–0.2 mm that produce intricate mineral skeletons, typically with a central capsule dividing the cell into the inner and outer portions of endoplasm and ectoplasm.Their skeletons were made of opaline silica.
Mookaite is also considered a sedimentary rock due to how it forms. Billions of remains from radiolarians were deposited as sediments in shallow regions of ancient sea beds.
Once these sea levels began to decline, the sediments became cemented into solid rock by additional silica that had been carried over from groundwater.
