Cheat Sheet – Magnesite

Hi everyone!

How are you today?  Welcome to another Cheat Sheet blog post! 

Each post will feature a new stone and brief description. If there are pieces in my portfolio which include these stones, they will be featured as well. 

Today we look at Magnesite. 

Let’s learn together!

  • Looks similar to Turquoise
  • The most common form of Magnesite is white
  • Magnesite is a mineral, magnesium carbonate that has the same crystal structure as calcite
  • Said to be a relaxing and calming stone
  • Being a porous gem, it can be dyed in many beautiful colours
  • Magnesite is often used to make fireworks because of its magnesium-rich formula

Below are examples of my work using Magnesite.
