The Mysterious Heiress: Researcher In Disguise - Chapter 543 - Jackpot Nonstop – 1
Chapter 543: Jackpot Nonstop – 1
A few experts from the Lucky Cloud Pavilion surrounded the lapidary with torchlights in their hands and began giving him instruction.
The color of the Imperial Jade in front of them was getting brighter and brighter under the intense light.
“It… It’s really an Imperial Jade. Look at the color. It’s so pretty!”
“How is this even possible? Does this mean that Chu Yunsheng has lost the bet?”
“Let’s not jump the gun first. Have you forgotten that the Wu Family thought they had gotten an Imperial Jade as well before it’s revealed to be a worthless stone? I guess we should keep watching first.”
“That’s right. Let’s not count the chickens before they hatch.”
Mumbling began to spread across the crowd.
Dust and debris were flying in the air. With the help of the group of experts, more and more green appeared in the crowd’s eyes, and they became agitated.
“Oh god, please tell me that I’m not hallucinating. Is that a whole chunk of Imperial Jade I’m seeing right now? I’ve never seen such a huge Imperial Jade before!”
“This is impossible. Mining Area C has been widely known for its lack of high-grade jade stone, so how is it possible that it could be an Imperial Jade?”
“Looks like the Lu Family just hit pay dirt! Not only did they get an Imperial Jade, but they didn’t have to pay a single cent for it!”
The Wu Family and Chu Yunsheng’s faces were grim when they heard what the crowd had said.
Wu Zhiheng was dumbstruck and he did not know what to say at all. They spent 300 million for nothing, while the Lu Family earned a bucket full. Chu Yunsheng stared fixedly at the Imperial Jade in disbelief.
“I’ve been working in the stone gambling industry my whole life, and the last Imperial Jade I saw was only the size of a fist. After processing, it’s sold for five million in an auction.”
Everyone gasped after hearing what the expert had said. If a fist-sized Imperial Jade could be sold for such a high price, they did not dare to imagine how much this massive Imperial Jade in front of them was worth.
“I’ve never seen such a huge Imperial Jade before, so I can’t estimate the price for it as well.”
“This is impossible! It can’t be an Imperial Jade! I know it. How could you guys tell lies here just to stir up some publicity? In all my years of stone gambling, I have never seen more than a hundred pounds of Imperial Jade before. Have you guys mixed up the Imperial Jade with an albite jade?” Chu Yunsheng snarled, his eyes red around the rims.
“A good jade is translucent, vibrant in color, and smooth to the touch. This color of this piece of Imperial Jade is vibrant and rich, and it’s definitely not an albite jade.
“Mr. Chu, with all due respect, you shouldn’t denigrate the Lucky Cloud Pavilion every time you don’t get the jade that you want. If my memory serves me right, the best jade that you’ve gotten in the past two year is the Lighter Imperial Jade. Just because you’ve never seen a hundred pounds of Imperial Jade before doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist, all right?”
Although this Imperial Jade could bring the name of the Lucky Cloud Pavilion to another whole new level, there was no way they would tell lies for no reason as it would not do any good to their reputation. As such, the experts and the other staff from the Lucky Cloud Pavilion were displeased at Chu Yunsheng’s attitude.
There were a lot of things going on Chu Yunsheng’s face. One second earlier, his face was pale in rage, then in the next second, it turned red due to his embarrassment. He even took a step forward to study the Imperial before admitting defeat.
Jin Can was jumping up and down in excitement. “Imperial Jade! This is an Imperial Jade! I’ve never seen such a massive Imperial Jade before! This is incredible! We need to take a picture to record this historical moment!”
Lu Jingqing nodded but he did not say anything. This was his first time seeing such a large-sized Imperial Jade as well, and although he seemed rather calm on the surface, the upward curve of his lips showed that he was in a good mood right now.
“Ms. Fu, I wonder, are you going to bring this Imperial Jade back, or are you going to sell it right now?” The expert asked.
A few men then chimed in, “Please name your price, Ms. Fu. We really want to buy this Imperial Jade from you.”
Fu Zhi looked at Lu Jingqing and Lu Jingqing fell into a contemplation. He did not bring a lot of men with him this time, and although there were some risks for transporting this Imperial Jade back to their country, he felt it was not a big problem.
However, since most of the people that wanted to buy the Imperial Jade were tycoons and bigshots in the jewellery industry, Lu Jingqing thought for a moment and said, “I’m going to bring half of it back to my country, and I can sell another half to you guys.”
The group of people shared a glance and they could see the delight in each other’s eyes.
The jewelry made of Imperial Jade had been the favorite of women from wealthy families. Therefore, if they really could get half of the Imperial Jade, they could really make a fortune out of it.
“Thank you very much, President Lu. If you need our help in the future, just let us know and we will do our best to help you,” some of the people that wanted to buy the Imperial Jade from Lu Jingqing said.
Then, Jin Can chimed in, “Should we pick some more jade stones later? After all, I don’t think you can produce enough jewelry with only half of the Imperial Jade.”
Just when Lu Jingqing was about to say something, a voice rang out on top of them. “Master Chu, where do you think you’re going? Have you forgotten about the bet?”
Everyone then turned their eyes towards Chu Yunsheng, who was planning to run away.
Chu Yunsheng intended to run away from here while everyone was focusing on the Imperial Jade. He did not expect that the head of the Long Family had been looking at him the entire time. He froze and sweat began to ooze from his forehead.
