COMMENTS: This Men’s ring is crafted of pure 24k gold. The ring has a “rolex style” band and a gold halo around the jade. The maw sit sit jade is a rich green color, bright like a rain forest! It is sometimes referred to as a variety of jadeite, but strictly speaking, maw-sit-sit is not jadeite, though it contains jadeite and is mined in the same area as imperial jadeite. Jadeite is a mineral, whereas maw-sit-sit is a rock. The dominant mineral of maw-sit-sit is kosmochlor and this sets it apart from jadeite, which is sodium aluminum silicate. Therefore, maw-sit-sit is best considered to be related to jadeite. The kosmochlor component of maw-sit-sit is what gives it a beautiful emerald-green color with blackish-green patches.Maw-sit-sit is also sometimes referred to as “chloromelanite” or “jade albite”, which are names given to rock composed of varying amounts of jadeite, albite feldspar and other minerals. Circa 1980’s. Pictured as received from a local estate. Very good estate condition with minimal wear indicative of age.
