Mawsitsit comes from the same deposit as the prized Imperial.
Unusual circumstances lead the formation of Mawsitsit: a low-temperature, high-pressure metamorphic rock. It was formed deep in the earth, and millions of years ago, when heat and pressure were applied to rock containing too much Chromium to become Jade. Instead of Jadeite and Albite interacting to form Imperial Jade; Ureyite and Albite interacted to form Mawsitsit.
