From the Early Cretaceous period, around 120 million years, Mookite was formed as the skeletal remains of radiolaria, a microscopic protozoa, were solidified. Additional silica carried in groundwater, along with minerals helped produce its beautiful combinations of bold red, burgundy, mustard-yellow, cream, white, brown, mauve and purple.
