I have trouble imagining that fully colored n" magnesite " beads are in fact magnesite. Fake composite stones have flooded the market for decades and are so prevalent that I find it hard to believe that makers of inexpensive beads would use natural magnesite rather than produce a product from magnesite powder and chemicals to bind it. A specific gravity test would likely differentiate the products.
