The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 104.2
Facts proved that Lin Luo’s guess wasn’t wrong. When the grinding wheel continued downward and sanded away the red fog, everyone was stunned, and some of the audience couldn’t help but stand up.
【Oh my god… this green…]
【This green is too good, right? Was the red mist just now fake? !】
【Ha ha ha, I knew it! How could Lin Luo choose randomly? He must have analyzed that the red mist and black tinea scabs wouldn’t affect the interior!】
After Lin Luo completely ground the window open, people could already see the condition of the jade inside. It was a oily dark green jade, with a pretty decent crystal structure.
If this piece of jade was pulled out on another occasion, it definitely wouldn’t have been thought of as a great jade, but since it was selected from a pile of scraps, it was definitely a big fortune.
However, grinding up is not considered an increase in value, and it still remained unseen how big the jade inside the piece of jadeite was.
At the same time, Liang Chao was cutting the first piece of jadeite he picked out. It was a piece of black sand skin jadeite, which was full of cracks and looked very miserable. He was lucky enough to grind out green too, but it wasn’t as dark as Lin Luo’s.
Judging from the current situation, the two sides were evenly matched. It would depend on who’s jade was the bigger jade and which one had the better crystal structure.
Lin Luo switched to the chrome knife, aimed at the edge of the window and started cutting the stone.
His jadeite wasn’t too big, so the cutting was done only a few minutes after the first cut.
He rinsed the cut surface with a water gun, and after seeing the verdant green, he showed a slight smile.
【Cut up, it’s a cut up! Now Lin Luo will win!】
【Lin Luo smiled, he smiles so cute! There are small dimples on the cheeks! I really want to poke them…】
【Shoo, shoo, don’t mess with the little LuoLuo of the male god’s house! Xiao LuoLuo belongs to the male god Xing Mo alone!】
The audience in the message area was discussing back and forth, and quickly went off topic.
In the end, Lin Luo solved a piece of oil green jade that weighed in at about four kilograms, which was valued at approximately 60,000 credits after being evaluated by the supervisors.
Liang Chao’s jadeite was larger than Lin Luo’s, so he was still cutting his stone, but from the current exposed part it looked like his jadeite should still be rising in value.
Lin Luo didn’t wait for him and directly put his second piece of jadeite on the shelf of the stone cutting machine.
His second piece of jadeite was a mountain stone bayberry sand skin jadeite with tinea scabs, pythons, cracks, and seedlings, which would be a wild gamble.
After they saw this piece of jadeite coming out on the stage, the audience on StarNet took a breath of shock. Although they had said that after the piece of jadeite just now they should have confidence in Lin Luo’s strength, they couldn’t help but worry about this piece of jadeite…
Lin Luo didn’t feel the anxiety and worry of the audience at all, and he began to grind the stone in an orderly manner.
At this time, Liang Chao finally finished his stone cutting.
What he cut was a piece of green bean jade. The color was not very uniform, the texture was relatively coarse, it was basically opaque, and the sheen was very dry. It was considered a low-grade variety. But the piece was bigger, so the final estimated value was 10,000 credits higher than Lin Luo.
After he heard the inspector’s assessment, a relieved smile appeared on his face.
At least he was currently in the lead. Even if he chose the wrong jadeite material for his second piece, he wouldn’t necessarily lose to Lin Luo!
Lin Luo didn’t have time to pay attention to him. He was carefully cutting his piece of jadeite for fear that it might be damaged. He knew exactly what the inside of the piece of jadeite in his hand looked like.
The skin of the jadeite was very thin, and there was almost no layer of fog, so Lin Luo had to be especially careful when grinding it.
The thin skin was quickly ground away, revealing the jade underneath, but the exposed jade was very ugly. Not only was the color gray, but there was also a lot of black tinea scabs that had eaten into the jade, not to mention the cracks on the top.
Hearing sighs over the court, Liang Chao raised his head and glanced at Lin Luo’s side. After seeing the look of the jade through the window, he couldn’t help but lift the corners of his lips.
The camera that connected to the big screen in the venue was mainly aimed at the jadeite on the stone cutting machine, so not many people saw Liang Chao’s schadenfreude smile, but the scene was clearly seen by the audience watching on the holographic mode on StarNet. .
【Fu̲c̲k̲! Is this Liang Chao gloating?!】
【What kind of person is this! So narrow minded!】
【Humph! I don’t think the condition of Liang Chao’s own jadeite is much better! What a pot calling the kettle black!】
As if to vent, the frustration and anger of tens of millions of people were all vented on Liang Chao at once, and the scrolling speed of the message area was dazzling.
Fortunately, Liang Chao didn’t know how big a reaction his subconscious move just now caused, otherwise he might not even be able to hold the chrome knife stably.
Liang Chao’s black sand skin jadeite was relatively large, and from the perspective of the cracks, the skin looked very thick. If the stone was ground, it would take a long time to deal with. As such, he simply cut the stone with the chrome knife.
 真是五十步笑百步 – Wǔ Shí Bù Xiào Bǎi Bù – lit. ‘those who retreated 50 paces laughed at those who retreated 100 paces’, idiom meaning someone who makes a mistake and laughs at someone who makes a similar but more serious mistake. Basically the same as ‘pot calling the kettle black’.
