The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 114.2
【Hey, it’s not necessarily clear yet who wins or loses! Lin Luo still has half a piece of jadeite!】
Lin Luo switched to the grinding wheel and began to slowly grind against the cut surface, and gradually green began to come out again.
【The cut surface is green! It seems that the jade grew deeper in!】
The viewers on StarNet couldn’t help but start screaming. Lin Luo knife cut vertically, so if he was still able to grind out jade, it meant that the jade inside has grown to a certain depth. The jade area ground out before wasn’t large, so as long as the jade grew deeply enough there was still hope that it could win.
Lin Luo slowly ground it down little by little, and the window that was ground out was about fifty centimeters wide. As long as he made another cut to determine the width of the jadeite, he would be able to estimate the approximate volume of the jadeite inside.
Lin Luo immediately put on the chrome knife again, aimed at the edge of the window and cut it down.
Lin Luo’s cut was relatively accurate, so he could already see some green through the thin stone layer without waiting for him to grind it with the grinding wheel.
Since the cut surface was slightly inclined, the jade was likely an irregular trapezoid, and the volume would be larger than people had initially expected.
But even if it was bigger than expected, it was only around fifty centimeters long, twenty centimeters high, and between twenty-seven to forty centimeters wide.
Lin Luo only needed to cut out this small piece of jade completely at the moment. The color could be determined to be boxwood leaf green. The type looked like ice type or hibiscus type. The estimated value was at most hundreds of thousands, so everyone was still more optimistic about Lu WenShan.
The elephant skin jadeite from Lu WenShan was almost finished with its grinding. The ground out window surface was roughly elliptical with a diameter of about forty to fifty centimeters. The color was a very bright apple green. The clarity was at least high ice type.
There was a common saying in the stone gambling industry that if “the color difference is one point, then the price difference is ten times.” Take high-end jade as an example. When comparing two jade of the same size and the same texture and clarity, the price difference between the two would lie in the color of the jadeite. The richer the color, the more abundant the elemental energy contained in it, so the more element liquid could be extracted. The better the texture and clarity, the greater the gap between the two jadeite. For example, a piece of rich imperial green glass jade would be ten times the price of a piece of light grass-green glass jade of the same size.
As far as the current situation was concerned, the apple green on Lu WenShan’s side was better than Lin Luo’s boxwood leaf green.
He finally replaced the grinding wheel with the chrome knife and was about to start cutting the stone.
“Uncle! How about I’ll cut it for you?!” Lu Chun said eagerly. He felt that this was an opportunity to make a big splash. Only when he cut this crucial cut could Lin Luo’s limelight be completely suppressed.
How could Lu Wenshan dare to ask him to help? He knows the level of his nephew very well. Every time Lu Chun bought a gambling stone, he directly asked the master stone cutters at the company to help cut it. The number of times he did it himself was very few. He was really afraid that Lu Chun wouldn’t be able to figure out the growth trend of the jade and would cut a good jade into two pieces with a single stroke. Then he would really be left wanting to cry with no place to go.
“No need, I’ll do it myself.” Lu WenShan fixed the jadeite in a certain position before grasping the chrome knife and slowly lowering the knife along the edge.
From the surface that was being cut, he could vaguely see the same white fog layer as at the beginning, indicating that the jade had indeed been eaten. The next thing to see was how far into the jade it had gone.
Lu WenShan’s chrome knife moved very slowly. Judging from the window, he had just sanded out, the jade inside was likely to be oval. If he cut straight, it was very likely that a small part of the jade will be cut off. He had a feeling that the quality of the jade in this piece of jadeite was definitely not bad, so it would pain him to see even a little cut off. As such, his movements when cutting the stone grew even slower.
Lu Chun was as anxious as an ant on a hot pot. He felt that Lu WenShan might be old enough that his movements were slowing with age. If it weren’t for the fact that Lu WenShan was his uncle and had a high status in the stone gambling world, he would have already gone up and tried to cut the stone himself.
But no matter how slow Lu WenShan’s movements were, the jade’s face inside was still revealed in front of everyone bit by bit.
Without the cover of the jadeite skin, the jade showed a clear and glossy sheen under the light.
【Fu̲c̲k̲, I’m not dazzled, am I? Is this…】
【Glass, glass type…?】
【It seems to really be a kind of glass!】
“Glass type! It’s a glass type! Heaven is helping me too!” Lu Chun still had some common sense. After recognizing that the jade might be a glass type, he immediately shouted with excitement.
Cui XueLi, who had been stopped off to the side by the organizer’s staff, also showed joy when she heard the words. She hadn’t expected that Lu Chun’s uncle was actually capable and was able to cut a glass jade from his selected gambling stone!
It seemed that Lin Luo was nothing extraordinary! The last time he was able to bet on a purple and gold two color glass jade must have just been luck!
Before, she thought that Lin Luo’s thunder stone would be able to contain a good jade! She couldn’t help but think that had she known that things would have turned out this way, then they wouldn’t have bothered to rob him at all! They even got a fine for nothing! What a shame for them!
