3089 That Costs Much More
When Shen Xiyin’s sight fell on the two raw jade materials in Leng Xiaoyao’s hands, she noticed the blood jade bracelet too. Then she paid more attention to it.
At this moment, Leng Xiaoyao didn’t miss any of her expressions, but Shen Xiyin looked very normal.
However, that couldn’t prove anything.
“Miss Shen, may I help?” Leng Xiaoyao asked.
“Oh, I’m just looking at the jade bracelet on your wrist,” Shen Xiyin said.
“Is there anything wrong with this bracelet?” Leng Xiaoyao asked confusedly.
“Not at all. I can’t be more familiar with jade, so I thought of blood jade the moment I saw your bracelet. I was wondering whether this one is made of blood jade, so I paid more attention to it,” Shen Xiyin replied.
In fact, Shen Xiyin wanted to ask Leng Xiaoyao whether the jade she was wearing was blood jade, but there were too many people, so she hesitated to ask.
If it was blood jade, it would be no problem, but if not, Leng Xiaoyao would be embarrassed. She might be telling everyone that Leng Xiaoyao was wearing fake jade.
Hearing Shen Xiyin’s words, Leng Xiaoyao understood her intention.
“Miss Shen, if you don’t mind, we can have some coffee after cutting these raw jade materials, then we can have a look at it,” Leng Xiaoyao said.
“Why not!” Shen Xiyin agreed with alacrity. She didn’t think Leng Xiaoyao had other intentions, she just felt that Leng Xiaoyao simply gave her a chance to see whether the jade was real.
Leng Xiaoyao couldn’t see any problems with Shen Xiyin.
Because no stone cutter was free currently, Leng Xiaoyao had to wait for a while.
“Are these your raw jade materials, Miss Shen?” Leng Xiaoyao asked Shen Xiyin.
“Yeah, I’ve cut several of them open, but none are valuable. Two were useless stones, and one was cheap. This is the last one. If there is no jade inside, I’ll stop gambling for the time being,” Shen Xiyin said.
Shen Xiyin knew a lot about stone gambling, but it mainly relied on one’s luck to cut out jade.
Shen Xiyin often bought raw jade materials. Although most of them weren’t valuable, she had cut out jade before. The probability was about 5%, but as long as she cut out a piece of jade, she could make a lot more than she paid for those raw jade materials.
However, the jade Shen Xiyin had cut out was at the middle level at the most. Most were at middle-low level.
“It mainly relies on one’s luck to cut out jade. If knowledge is enough, those experts would come and buy raw jade materials every day, then they can all be rich,” Leng Xiaoyao said. If they wanted to cut out jade very often, they must have special skills, like what Leng Xiaoyao had.
“You’re right.” Shen Xiyin agreed.
After a third of Shen Xiyin’s raw jade material was cut off, they saw green.
Even if Shen Xiyin had cut out jade before, it didn’t happen often, so she was still extremely excited. She was only afraid that it might just be a thin layer of green again.
Shen Xiyin was very nervous, waiting for the stone cutter to continue.
Luckily, there was really jade inside. Although it was just at the middle-low level, it was still valuable and Shen Xiyin was very happy.
“Congratulations, Miss Shen,” Leng Xiaoyao said.
“Thanks, Miss Leng.” Shen Xiyin replied.
Upon seeing the jade, many people offered a price for it, but Shen Xiyin turned them down. She came to buy raw jade materials in order to get jade.
After Shen Xiyin got the jade, it was Leng Xiaoyao’s turn.
Everyone was looking forward to seeing whether there was jade in Leng Xiaoyao’s half-cut raw jade materials. They guessed whether she could make money.
Since the raw jade materials were half cut, it was more likely to see jade in them. Therefore, they mainly wanted to see whether the jade in them was more valuable than the half-cut raw jade materials.
Shen Xiyin clearly knew that it relied on one’s luck to cut out jade, so she didn’t bother to ask Leng Xiaoyao whether she was confident.
When Shen Xiyin watched the raw jade materials being cut open, she was very nervous, but Leng Xiaoyao looked extremely calm.
Was she confident, or did she not actually care about it?
Even if Shen Xiyin had doubts, she didn’t ask about it.
After a cut, a piece of jade came out. Both its quality and color were at a high level.
The first layer wasn’t valuable, but it was totally different after a cut.
“Wow, this is a middle-high level confederate rose.” The stone cutter exclaimed.
Because stone-gambling wasn’t very popular here, not many people were interested in it. As a result, they would rarely see jade cut out. Therefore, the stonecutter was greatly surprised to see a piece of high quality jade.
In an instant, everyone was shocked. The next moment, they turned to look at Leng Xiaoyao with admiration and jealousy.
They might not have interest in stone-gambling, but most of them knew the value of the confederate rose jade. Leng Xiaoyao could make a fortune with it, so it was impossible for them not to be jealous.
“Jesus, it’s a confederate rose. That’s amazing.”
“Right, I’m so jealous of her. She can make a fortune with it.”
“If I had known there was a confederate rose in it, I would have bought it.”
“Stop dreaming. Everyone would have bought it if we had known about it beforehand.”
“Now we’re sure there is jade inside, but we don’t know the size yet. It’s hard to see whether it’s worth a lot.”
“Right, perhaps there is only a small piece of jade. After all, this half-cut raw jade material costs a lot.”
“Yeah, if the jade in it isn’t worth over ten million yuan, she will suffer a loss.”
Some people were very jealous of seeing Leng Xiaoyao make money, but their words made sense, so they weren’t criticized.
Shen Xiyin and Gu Yankai didn’t expect Leng Xiaoyao to cut out jade right away, and the jade was of high quality. They were both surprised and were envious of her, but they weren’t jealous.
“Congratulations, Miss Leng! You have a piece of very valuable jade,” Shen Xiyin said sincerely.
However, Leng Xiaoyao didn’t look excited at all. Shen Xiyin was very curious about the reason why she stayed so calm. Was Leng Xiaoyao hiding her real emotions?
Gu Yankai also wondered the same thing. However, other people were attracted by the jade, so they didn’t pay much attention to Leng Xiaoyao’s reaction.
