'Ping' (Áď∂) is the word for 'vase' or 'bottle' in the Chinese language'. The same word also means 'peace', so it has a pleasant connotations.

Maw Sit Sit is a rare gemstone found exclusively in northern Myanmar (Burma). It is sometimes referred to as "Jade-Albite" or "Chrome Jade" due to its bright green colour and high chromium content. 

First identified in 1963, Maw Sit Sit was named after the village close to where it was first found in the foothills of the Himalayas.

On Mohs scale, it is measured 6-7. It is typically bright green with dark green to black veins, and is composed of several different minerals including albite feldspar, kosmochlor (ureyite) and chromium-enriched jadeite.

 

Color may vary in images and videos due to different lightings and angles.
