These bold beads make a fabulous economical substitute for Turquoise, and perfectly compliment fresh Summery styles. Magnesite or Magnesium Carbonate is a highly porous, low luster stone which makes it a great candidate for enhancement and dying. It can be difficult to distinguish Magnesite from both dolomite and serpentine; both are also very suitable stones for enhancement and often marketed as faux jade. Magnesite can be dyed into a broad spectrum of bold colors, and is often enhanced to resemble Turquoise, it is sometimes known as lime Turquoise, white Turquoise, or marshmallow Turquoise. Native American cultures have crafted Magnesite into beads for both jewelry and currency for hundreds of years.
