Hello, I do not have an answer for your question about green
goldstone, but as far as a wholesale supplier that carries
magnetic clasps…In the most recent wholesale catalog for Rings
& Things, they have strong magnetic clasps listed as:
Item#39-404 Small (5x11mm) @ $2.50/set or $21.60/dozen sets and
Item#39-406 Large (7x11mm) @ $3.00/set or $23.70/dozen
sets…Their Toll Free number is 1-800-366-2156. Good Luck,

Actually the green goldstone is made in Germany for the glass
industry. Comes in a cylinder about 1" in diameter and about a
foot long. Ernie Phelps http://www.ernestcreations.com

Green goldstone has been available in pancake shape since the
60s. Unlike blue and gold, green has never been available in
thick chunks (broken from larger melts); it has always been in
puddled pieces about 1/2 to 5/8 inch thick, and up to 8 inches in
diameter. I, too, believe it comes from Japan. Orienting green
goldstone is easy - it always orients parallel to the pancake
surface; orienting the other forms is harder because of their
random fracture shapes.

The material has been widely used as a lapidary material.
Perhaps even more widely than for hot glass work. for making
beads, if you need smaller chunks, why not put it in a couple
layers of heavy plastic bag, and bash it with a hammer. You
should quickly end up with some nice small bits…
