 I am the miner of  brecciated mookaite.

 This is another new find from the outback of Western Australia.

It occurs near the Kennedy Ranges about 100 miles inland from the coastal town of Carnarvon.

This geologically interesting rock is actually a brecciated radiolarite.

The red cementing matrix does not undercut and takes a glassy polish.
