Magnesite is usually found as a microcrystalline mass, compact and opaque, similar to porcelain, greyish white or yellowish. When it is a perfectly crystallized piece, magnesite is colourless, transparent if pure; or yellowish if it contains iron, manganese or calcium, replacing magnesium in the composition. It is used to bring peace to meditation. It helps bringing balance in hard relationships. It also helps in the recognition of unconscious thoughts. It helps selfish persons in being more generous. Magnesium is extracted from this stone; which is an essential part of the bath salts, thanks to its important therapeutic properties.
