Magnesite Butterfly Beads
White magnesite beads and additional colors of dyed magnesite are one of the most affordable semi precious beads. Magnesite has the same crystal structure as calcite. Magnesite's white color, porous composition, and low luster make this gemstone ideal for enhancement.
Most magnesite on the market is dyed and stabilized, and some of the more unusual shapes are most likely molded from a resin and magnesite mixture.
