These magnesite gemstone beads have facets cut into them allowing them to reflect light. 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 forms when magnesium-rich rocks such as serpentine or dolomite are exposed to carbon dioxide-rich water. Mohs hardness scale for Magnesite is 3.5 to 5 (for comparison, diamond is a 10 being the hardest stone).
Magnesite stones in its natural state is a white to grey color and can be enhanced through dyeing because of its good porosity. The dyed blue color makes it an economical simulation of turquoise. Magnesite gemstone beads look like turquoise when dyed and consists of the brown and black patterns just like turquoise.
Genuine cinnabar is made from the mineral mercury sulfide which was made into a powder, lacquer added for hardening and then carved with designs used for jewelry and bowls and other wares. Today, we know that this is toxic because of the mercury content so real cinnabar is not used anymore. These beads can really be called "imitation" cinnabar which is made from a polymer resin, dyed red, shaped and carved.
