Add an engaging detail to your unique and tailored look with these enticing gemstone earrings. So unconventional, each attention-getting style features a hoop fashioned in rare black and -green maw sit sit. Maw sit sit is a green and black gem material that has been confused with jade for hundreds of years.
It was once thought to be a variety of jade because of its similar appearance and physical properties. It was often referred to as "chrome jade" because of its bright chrome-green color.Maw sit sit is not a jade. Instead, it is a metamorphic rock composed mainly of kosmochlor, clinochlore, chromian jadeite, and albite, with small amounts of eckermannite, chromite and other minerals. Kosmochlor (NaCrSi2O6) is a rare sodium chromium pyroxene mineral that is abundant in some meteorites. It forms the jet-black areas in many polished specimens of maw sit sit and often has a brighter luster than the rest of the material. Chromium-rich jadeite and clinochlore are the main source of maw sit sits bright green color. Clinochlore is a magnesium-rich member of the chlorite mineral group. Albite is a common feldspar mineral. Eckermannite is a rare amphibole-group mineral. Jadeite's composition (NaAlSi2O6) is similar to the composition of kosmochlor, and the two minerals form a solid-solution series with chromium substituting for aluminum.
