The largest and commercially most important source of jadeitite.
Large jade mining area. Also known as Phakan-Tawmaw Jade Tract or the Jade Mine Tract.

Covers part of the Kachin State and the adjacent Sagaing Division.

Jadeitite dykes, typically tens to hundreds of meters long and tens of centimeters to tens of meters wide, are hosted in serpentinites of the Hpakant-Tawmaw serpentinite mélange (composed mainly of peridotite-serpentinite, amphibolites and pyroxenites, with minor chromitite, gabbro, glaucophane schist, diopside marble and other rocks) which covers an area that is about 50 km long from north to south and 5-10 km wide from east to west. The jadeitite is usually associated with albitite, which forms veins that cut through the dykes along cleavages and fractures. They are interpreted as having been formed through hydrothermal filling and precipitation processes during uplift of the jadeitite (Wang et al., 2013).
