Here is a 15" strand of 12x18mm zuni bear beads which are temporarily strung. There are approximately 30 beads on these strands.
Magnesite has a creamy color with detailed dark to light brown veining, creating a porcelain-like appearance. It is stabilized to provide strength and to create a nice, even polish. The amount of matrix in each bead will vary as with any natural stone. Magnesite is an easy stone to work with and takes color quite well making it an asset in the jewelry industry.
