This pendant incorporates a natural stone of Australian Mookaite wrapped in 14KT gold-filled wire.
Mookaite can be described as chert, opalite, chalcedony or combinations of the three. The degree of silica in the material determines its description.
The name "mookaite" originates from the location where the rock was first discovered and is currently mined, Mooka Creek. According to locals, the Aboriginal word "mooka" means "running waters".
This stone is hand cut by me and I then wrapped in 14KT gold-filled wire. It is displayed on a 14KT gold-filled chain.
It is approximately 35.5 carats in weight and 2 ½ inches in length from the top of the bail to the bottom of the stone. It is about 1 inch in width at the widest point.
