Mookaite 100gm small pieces


This versatile and beautiful stone is mined in WA and is named after the 700,000 acre sheep station, Mooka Station, where it was first discovered.

It is wonderful to use in a mosaic because of the wide variety of lovely colours, and once cut into manageable sized pieces, can be cut with a tile nipper into regular shapes.  Work with Mookaite in the same way as you would Smalti, using a direct embedding technique.

Predominantly  red, white and yellow but also has bone/ivory, orange, purple, maroon, pink, crimson and  mustard through the rock.

You can purchase the rough uncut chunks for $25 a kilo or pieces that have been broken into manageable pieces for mosaics for $5.00 per 100gm
