I Know Everything - Chapter 625
Chapter 625: Jade Stone.
Wang Zhen’s guess on Chen Huan noise being in the market was right.
However, Chen Huan wasn’t in a normal market but a Jade Market.
He had flown to Caiyun at the southwest border of the country where several jade markets were close to Burma.
The biggest was naturally the Ruili Jade Trading Market.
Basically 40% of all jades and stones were traded there.
Another big jade trading market was in eastern Guangdong where there was also a 100 years old jade trading market.
Those in eastern Guangdong were mostly processed jade and there were less rough stones.
If Chen Huan was an ordinary person, he would certainly buy the processed jade as it was a lot safer even though pricier.
However, Chen Huan wasn’t an ordinary person.
He received the favor of a system and got ‘Jade Master (Beginner)’ so why couldn’t he come take a look?
Jade trading was often called stone gambling.
Basically, a rough piece of jadeite would be put in front and people would bet whether it had jade in it.
Win a fortune if right but lose the fortune if wrong.
Betting could be extremely addicting, especially when there was a chance to win it big.
They would want to bet again when they won or make a profit when they lost.
Many wealthy people with a net worth of hundreds of millions of yuans lost all their wealth to this in a year or two.
With the continued development of the society, stone gambling also developed and wasn’t as crude as before.
The current gambling wasn’t only the full bet but there was also the open window, half bet, open gambling and so on…
The full bet was the one everyone knew and that people choose the unprocessed stone to bet on.
Open windows were for those jade masters as they would make a small opening on the most likely place of the stone to have jade so they could see if there was jade inside.
As for whether it was just that, half of it, or full of it, it would depend on their own skills and luck.
The half bet was as the name suggested as they would cut the stone further to one-third to half the stone so they could see a larger area whether there was jade in it.
Open bet was even simpler. All the stone was cut so nobody could be deceived and people would compete via who paid more.
The full bet and open bet were two extremes and those who were betting on stones for many years didn’t like either of them.
So the most popular were the open window and half bet.
Although the price of it was much higher than the full bet, there was less risk and it reflected better their judgment as well as luck.
Actually, there were even bigger bets and that was mountain gambling.
In some areas of Burma, they could spend 50 million, 100 million, 200 million or 300 million to buy off some hills. They could get all the jades that would be coming from it.
However, it wasn’t uncommon for a hill to not have a single jade and have all the millions going down the drains.
Chen Huan was in the Jewelry Streets, one of Ruili’s five major jewelry parks.
There were big and small shops with many stalls carrying many bags, which contained millions of stones.
Chen Huan didn’t come here alone but was accompanied by Shui Qianyu.
Although she didn’t express any dissatisfaction with Zhang Yaya’s actions, now that he had returned to China, she obviously wanted him to spend more time with her.
After all, Chen Huan will go to China Agriculture University for his study in august.
They would only be able to spend two or three months per year together, that was too little time.
Chen Huan asked if she wanted to come with him to Caiyun to buy Jade so she obviously readily agreed.
Caiyun had good weather all year round and in the summer, the sun was there but the temperature wasn’t very high so it was suitable for people to go out and do some shopping.
There were already thousands of people wandering or bargaining for stones when the two came to the Jewelry Streets.
Chen Huan was actually the most popular celebrity in the country so he had a mask on him.
It couldn’t be helped, their country just had too many people.
Could he even buy any jadeite if they all came up to him?
There would be no chance of using his cheat even if he wanted to!
Putting away his phone, Chen Huan took Shui Qianyu’s hand and stopped by a roadside stall.
These stalls were about the same from those in normal markets except the fact that it sold jade instead of vegetables.
Chen Huan looked at the stones on the stall. Most of them were full bet type stones while the few open windows type were in front of the stall owner.
“Handsome, want to make a fortune today?” The boss was a fat man in his thirties and said to Chen Huan while laughing, “Don’t be shy, take a look and tell me which one you like. The stones here are all from Myanmar famous jade pit Daiki and are of very good quality, the price can be negotiated!”
Everyone in this business was quite toxic.
Chen Huan looked very young while Shui Qianyu looked fifteen or sixteen, they looked like tourists who came to play.
However, the clothes on them were definitely not ordinary goods as the material and brand set them at thousands of yuans.
Moreover, the pair of youngsters didn’t look like they had any hardship in life so their family were obviously rich and had no worries in life.
The Jade bosses loved this type of customer the most.
They were young, lacked knowledge and plenty of money.
Weren’t they like fat sheep coming to the slaughter house?
It was just that they were too young and didn’t have much money in their hands, otherwise the boss felt like he would have the hope to get millions of yuan worth of sales from him.
Chen Huan laughed when he heard him. He let go of Shui Qianyu’s hand and randomly picked a potato sized stone.
“One piece of inferior jadeite stone, 1% of producing jade.”
This sentence immediately appeared in his vision.
Chen Huan did his homework before coming.
Daiki was a famous jadeite pit from Myanmar where many good jadeites were produced.
Unexpectedly, the Good Lord’s ‘Jade Master(Beginner)’ was so good, that he would get information by just holding and looking at it.
1% wasn’t worth to gamble on at all.
