Magnesite in Wonderstone
Magnesite is magnesium carbonate and is a white mineral that forms as small nodules that look like little flowers when cut. The magnesite is in wonderstone – a volcanic ash that has been silicified and color bands are the result of different minerals precipitating from hydrothermal fluids. The colors in this wonderstone are various shades of purple, colors that are often found associated with manganese oxide.
