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.
I've received and examined my first order. GemSelect combined my two orders (places separately on the same day) saving me $20.00 as a credit. After having received the order, I know I will most assuredly be using the credit on a subsequent order. The gemstones were as represented on the website, so much so that I have kept a copy of the photos as references. I'm very happy with the price, the quality and the excellent shipment which I received very promptly. Kudos to them, also, for all...
My first experience with your company. Brilliant. Received the gem a whole day earlier than I expected, in perfect condition. Extremely happy with the stone. Confirmed size, shape, weight and clarity were as advertised, with my Jeweller. I love the colour. Thanks. I will definitely shop with you again.
