Maw-sit-sit is one of the more unusual gemstones in the world, from its curious name to its variable chemical composition. It is a recent find, first identified in 1963 by the late Swiss gemologist Dr. Edward Gubelin. It was named after the village in northwestern Burma which is close to the site where it was first found.
Maw-sit-sit is considered to be a rock rather than a mineral, since it is composed of a number of different minerals, including kosmochlor (a mineral related to jadeite) and varying amounts of jadeite and albite feldspar. It is often classified as a member of the jade family but it is not truly a variety of jadeite.

Shipping is faster than anything bought and shipped here in the states. Mine came in 3 days and could be tracked all the way. I did return a gem but had no problems with delivery or refund thank goodness. Customer service was excellent with all my requests. Wanted eyes on to see actual color of gems and Gem Select were extremely helpful. Have used them twice. Very happy both times. Will use again.
