  • Also known as Pony Beads, Forte Beads are a 5x7mm bead that is rectangular in shape with rounded edges, almost like a rondel or heishi. They have a larger hole of 2.5mm, allowing for you to use many kinds of stringing materials. Our favorite cords to use is our pre-made bracelet and necklace nylon cords, they have finished ends so it makes it super simple to string on your forte beads and go! Another one of our favorite cords to use is our 1.5mm Nylon cords. We have all kinds of colors to choose from to match your style.
  • What is it: Magnesite is named after the presence of magnesium in its composition. White magnesite is very porous and has the ability to absorb dye to produce almost any color imaginable. 
  • History: Magnesite dyed a turquoise color has been an inexpensive substitute for turquoise for nearly 100 years. Be cautious when purchasing tumbled opaque stones that are super vibrant. A test to see if a stone is actually dyed magnesite is to use a cotton swab and nail polish remover. If it is magnesite, the color of the stone will rub off.
  • Metaphysical Properties: Magnesite encourages deep peace during meditation. When placed on the third eye, this stone enhances visualisation and can inspire great ideas. It opens the crown chakra and the heart chakra.

Because gemstones are natural materials, appearances may vary from bead to bead.
