This lovely rock is found in the Goldfields area of Western Australia from Norseman to Wiluna. It is found in some of the same locations as Chrysoprase. It occurs in veins and plates and nodule form. It ranges in colour from a lovely green to very pale cream colour, with the green as a result of nickel mineralisation. Our Magnesite is untreated, the colour is just as it came from the ground.
Western Australian Magnesite nodule, with skull carved into it, and the rest of the nodule left rough. No two skulls are the same. The shape of the nodule determines the shape of the skull. skull67 7x7cm, 400 gms,
