| A New Discovery, Vibrant Landscapes & Lightning Reds
New launches this week! Sunset Mookaite,
Polychrome Jasper & Red Lightning Agate
is a new discovery from the Southwestern United States. The name was provided to us by the company that mines the rough material, a cool perk you get when you unearth a new material. Sunset Mookaite has the characteristic banding and ribbons found in classic Mookaite, but the colors are a little softer and muted. More like a sunset. The material shares many characteristics of another stone typed mined from the region Hickoryite. Metaphysically, Mookaite is thought to assist with calming and to promote versatility.
is named for its multiple colors and vibrant landscape patterns that form throughout the rock. Polychrome was discovered in the deserts of Madagascar in 2006 and is only available in small deposits. This opaque, multi-colored chalcedony develops in large formations and is believed to be one of the rarest on the planet. Polychrome Jasper is thought to offer stability, balance and grounding.
