Some alternative healers believe it to decrease stress and encourage restful sleep, it is also often known as "Tranquility Stone".

Description: The sky's the limit for design possibilities using these fun brightly hued nugget beads! Magnesite makes an economical substitute for turquoise, and perfectly compliments fresh Southwestern styles. Magnesite or Magnesium Carbonate can range from transparent to opaque and 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.
