Sunset over Ayer's Rock

Mookaite is a wonderfully diverse gemstone. This set is made completely of the one stone, with colours ranging from cream to mustard to pinks, reds, purples and rich browns. Mookaite is a gemstone that is only mined in the Mooka Creek, Australia and to many evokes the feel and rich earthy tones of an Aussie sunset.

Here, different shapes, sizes and facets of Mookaite have been used to bring out the best in this unique gemstone. I have wired some of the beads to make pretty flower shapes and add an asymmetric design to the necklace.
