If you have never heard of the gemstone called Maw Sit Sit - you are not alone. Its distinctive brilliant emerald green color sets it apart in the world of gemstones and it is highly coveted among collectors. It is found alongside jadeite and mined only in one part of the world - The Himalayan foothills of Burma. The extraction of this gemstone is extremely rudimentary and access to the mining area is at best - a challenge. It is extremely rare and because of it’s mineral composition, difficult to cut and polish. Chromium is the mineral that gives the stone it’s vibrant emerald green color.
A beautiful suite of polished emerald green Maw Sit Sit nuggets has been separated with smooth Columbian emerald rondelles, which keep the magnificent vibrant color alive. A gorgeous necklace that can be worn any season, day or night - this design would be a perfect and tasteful necklace for the upcoming holidays.
