MAGNESITE is typically white, but ranges from colorless to gray or tan. Some refer to it as "chalk turquoise" or "white turquoise," but magnesite is not related to turquoise.
For hundreds of years, many Native Americans, including the Pomo people of California, crafted magnesite into beads used as jewelry and currency. Magnesite beads were considered quite valuable and were traded individually, instead of by the strand like most money beads.
\Magnesite is found around the world, including much of Europe, Africa, Brazil, China, Korea and the U.S.A

COPPER is well know to be a conductor of energy

AQUAMARINE-The name Aquamarine comes from a Latin word meaning “water of the sea”.  
The  watery blue color adds to its reputation of being a good talisman for sailors.  Sailors in the middle ages believed it would ensure a safe passage.  Legends from the middle ages claim that Aquamarine was the treasure of mermaids and could cure the effects of poisoning.  
Like the water of the sea for which it is named, Aquamarine comes in shades from blues to greens and most people find the colors soothing and calming.
