Mawsitsit Gemstone

This gemstone is often found when mining for  Imperial Jadeite. It was named after the Burmese  town with the same name following its discovery  by gemmologist Eduard Gubelin in 1963.  Prior  to this period as it was often found in the same  mines as Jade many people mistook Mawsitsit to  be Jade.This gemstone has a similar toughness to the Jade it is often found near to, and is usually dark green to black in colour. It has veins that are  beautiful Emerald green to intense neon green.

Mawsitsit is often mistaken for Malachite, but  unlike  Malachite,  Mawsitsit  does  not  have  colour banding.
