From a place called Maw Sit Sit in upper Myanmar. Maw sit sit was first identified by the late Dr. Eduard Gubelin in 1963 and named after the village close to the site where it was found.

Chemical: Combination of elements but primarily chromite and jadeite.

Formation: A metamorphic rock that was formed when higher pressure changed a formation of igneous rocks. The formation had a lot of chromium based minerals such as chromite and chrome rich jadeite, which accounts for the color.

A metamorphic rock with a complex composition from Myanmar (Burma).
Maw-Sit-Sit is the name of the area in Burma where this mineral is found.
Maw Sit Sit is a gem stone, composed from at least six different minerals as main constituents.
They can vary greatly in their relatives amounts and therefore the rock may vary strongly in its visual aspect as well as in its specific gravity value.
The name Maw Sit Sit was given to this aggregate metamorphic rock by the locals who live near Kansi and Namshawa in North Burma (Myanmar).
Maw-sit-sit was first identified in 1963 by the Swiss Gemologist Eduard Gübelin; the local called the stone maw-sit-sit, and the name was retained.
Maw-sit-sit is composed of chromite, ureyite, chrome jadeite, symplektite, chrome amphibole, and other lighter minerals.

The main constituents of Maw Sit Sit (Kosmochlor Jade) are:

Notice the small natural Lavender Burma Jade stone. This is true color, and very hard to come by.

Chromite: small black relictic grains of metallic luster, mostly as cores in black Kosmochlor aggregates, provided they show central grains of higher luster.
Kosmochlor: forming nests of fine felty NaCrSi2O6 which are the typical black spots in some Maw Sit Sit.
Kosmochlor is the Cr-Analogon of Jadeite NaAlCrSi2O6. The former name of Kosmochlor was Ureyite.

Chrome-Jadeite: is encountered as larger single crystals forming blocky mosaics.
There is a solid solution or mixed series situation between Jadeite, Chrome-Jadeite and Kosmochlor by the substitution of Aluminum by Chromium.
In Maw Sit Sit, usually various members of this series are present.

Symplektite: a very fine mineral mixture, which cannot be resolved microscopically.
Symplekite is also green due to the chromium content of its components. Chrome-Amphibole, or Amphibole: in larger crystals, depending on its chromium contents green or grey.
After their chemical composition they were identified as Eckermanite bzw.

Arfvedsonite Matrix: a mixture of bright mineral components (Zeolite, Chlorite, Albite, and Serpentine) which fills the space between the minerals named above.
Fine veinlets mainly also consist of Zeolite, Chlorite, Albite or Serpentine.

Formation Process:

Maw Sit Sit was formed in connection with a high-pressure low temperature rock metamorphosis which affected an ultrabasic body locally.
New formations of minerals also took place after the culmination of the metamorphosis.
Essentially it was a metasomatic reaction between serpentinites and albite dykes.
The chromium that is found in most of the constituent minerals most probably stems from former chromite layers, which have been dissolved during the metamorphic transitions.
Remnants of chromite are sometimes found as relicts within the Kosmochlor spots.
The Maw Sit Sit deposit is placed at the rim of a larger peridotite body that has been altered and serpentinized.

The deposit is northern and close to the classical Jadeite location in Burma ( Tawmaw, Namshawa).

Other names currently applied to the material:

Chloromelanite is an older mineral name of a pyroxene mineral that is not part of Maw Sit Sit.
It might also be in use due to its descriptive name for" CHLOROS=GREEN" and "MELANOS=BLACK".
Jade-Albite is a name composed of two mineral names which may occur in Maw Sit Sit, but are subordinate and less frequent so that it is not justified to use them for naming the stone.


Density: 2.5-3.2 g / cm3 depending on composition.
Moh's Hardness: 6.0.
Refractive index = 1.766/1.781, SG=3.6
Colors: light green to black, monochrome, mottled or spotted, frequently with black spots or white spots and veinlets.
Notable Characteristics: Extremely tough, actually stronger than steel.

Care & Maintenance:

It is not recommended that Maw Sit Sit be cleaned in an ultrasonic cleaner, or exposed to temperature extremes. It is also recommended that care be taken in wearing Maw Sit Sit because its hardness or durability is directly affected by the proportion and composition of the above minerals.
