Metallic magnesium is usually  covered by the reduction of the  chloride but it can also be obtained  from the redaction of the oxide or  carbonate.

The highly refractory quality, of  magnesite.and.its.ability to forrri .a  hard vitreous body when combined  .with magnesium chloride has led to  its adoption for a number of purposes. The largest consumption .is  in ��� the manufacture of magnesite  firebrick, crucibles and in bedding  steel furnaces. It is mixed with  sand, sawdust, ground quartz, talc  and other substances in the manufacture ot tile, flooring, roofing,  artificial marble, vvainscotting, etc.  Magnesium bisulphite is used in  digesting' and whitening wood pulp  in paper mills.
