WHAT IS PINK MOOKAITE OPAL:
Australian Pink Opal is a marketing name, but is simply a different form of Mookaite, that is Pink Mookaite.
Here we will refer to it as Pink Opal or Australian Pink Opal because it is the name you will find it under.
It is an extremely bright pink opalized Radiolarite.
It is found as a dominant horizontal bed within zones of coloured porcellanites located beneath a surface brecciated zone of iron, silica and pink opal fragments.
The pink opal often shows Liesegang banding, and microcrystalline quartz filled vugs.
( A vug, vugh, or vugg is a small to medium-sized cavity inside rock.)
The pink opal is a stone without equals.
It is known as the “stone of spiritual awakening” and its varieties of colors range from pale pink to lavender, through cream tones with lots of white veins.
It owes its coloration to the presence of manganese in its composition and does not present iridescence particles on the surface.
