  • Magnesite

    Magnesite Medley

    Magnesite is a magnesium carbonate with the same crystal structure as calcite, a calcium carbonate with a hardness and texture similar to turquoise and marble. Magnesite can be dyed into a broad spectrum of bold colors because of its good porosity. The dyed blue-green color makes it an economical simulation of turquoise.
