The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 75.1
Chapter 75: I Have Money
“That is great. I will give you a commission of 20% of the value of the jade you bet on, including the previous elemental liquid. I will also convert it into credit points for you.” Andrei was very confident on betting on Lin Luo ability, so while he couldn’t ask Lin Luo for help, if Lin Luo was willing to help, Andre wouldn’t take advantage of him and make sure to pay any pertinent fees..
“No, 20% commission is too much.” Lin Luo repeatedly waved his hands and refused.
Lin Luo heard from Andre yesterday that this planet was a resource star under his name, but because the planet was small and the climate was bad it resulted in a small output, so he simply assigned all the mineral resources here to his fleet. Every batch of mined ore was cut on the spot, so even without Lin Luo’s help, they may waste a little time and effort, but there would be no less jade.
Plus, Lin Luo just wanted to use this opportunity to kill time. He really couldn’t comfortably accept such a high commission offered by Andre.
“Do not be polite with me. Do not worry, I have money.” Andre’s local tyrant air was on full display.
However, under Lin Luo’s insistence and with difficulty, he had to compromise and lowered Lin Luo’s commission for gambling jadeite to 5%.
Lin Luo immediately went to work and checked the dozens of jadeite on the trailer one by one, and finally only selected three jadeite.
“Are you sure? Why did you choose only these few bad looking pieces from so many jadeite? There is obviously a piece of jadeite here that looks good to me!” A young man present suddenly raised objections.
“Ollie.” Andre frowned at the young man.
“Your Excellency… I…” Ollie wanted to say something, but seeing that Andre looked unworried, he had to shut his mouth.
Lin Luo didn’t feel angry. He looked at the piece of jadeite pointed out by Ollie, and said, “This piece of stone you are looking at is Damakan stone. This kind of stone usually has a thicker matrix and is more honeycomb-shaped. There are usually also a lot of fog layers inside, which makes it likely that there wont be a substantial amount of usable jade.”
Although Lin Luo was clear and confident, Ollie was obviously not convinced, “You think so? This piece of jadeite is black sand skin. The surface of the sand is obviously very good, there is a large piece of buckwheat pine flower on the lower side. I think this piece of jadeite must have jade!”
The Tobys are natural warriors because of their racial talent. Although Ollie was a mecha fighter, he was also very interested in betting on jadeite. He once studied with a famous rock gambling master in the Federation for a period of time and wasn’t bad. Before Lin Luo arrived, His Excellency Andre was asking him to choose a gambling stone, but after Lin Luo appeared, His Excellency Andre stopped letting him choose. It would inevitably appear that he was seen as inferior to Lin Luo, which made him a little uncomfortable.
Ollie didn’t follow Andre to the empire, so he didn’t know Lin Luo’s level of gambling. From his personal point of view, it was difficult for him to be convinced by an expert in gambling as young as Lin Luo.
“Ollie!” Andre’s voice sank, a warning looming in his eyes.
Although Ollie lowered his head and said no more, the lips that were still tightly pressed still showed his inner dissatisfaction.
Lin Luo smiled at Andre. He didn’t care about Ollie’s doubts. He could see that Ollie had worked hard in gambling on rocks, and he was really optimistic about this piece of jadeite and raised doubts. There was no malice, so he explained in further detail for him, “The matrix stone of this jadeite is black and yellow, not the common black sand skin. If you judge it by the same standards as black sand skin, your judgment will be prone to deviation. Although there is a piece of buckwheat pine flower here, there is also a ribbon shaped opening on the side and a small horizontal crack. Looking in from the crack, you can find a faint yellow mist. Taken together, these elements are not a good sign. The color inside was likely eaten by fog.”
After listening to Lin Luo’s analysis, Ollie showed a look of doubt.
“If you don’t believe it, you can cut this piece of jadeite and take a look for yourself.” Lin Luo said, pointing to another jadeite cutting machine next to them.
“Okay! I will cut it!” Ollie immediately responded loudly, but after speaking, he immediately looked in Andre’s direction nervously.
Andre nodded slightly, allowing Ollie to also cut the stone.
Ollie picked up the piece of jadeite in excitement and walked in the direction of the jadeite cutting machine. He felt that the reason why His Excellency Andre agreed was his explanation and recognition of his ability.
What a beautiful misunderstanding…
Ollie directly aimed at the position of the buckwheat pine flower with the grinding wheel and started grinding the stone. As the skin was continuously ground away, a light yellow fog appeared from the window that was ground out. This pale yellow fog was a good sign, just like white fog. Ollie’s face was faintly happy, and he became more convinced that there was good jade in his jadeite.
Lin Luo also began to cut his three pieces of jadeite he had selected. He first picked up a piece of yellow sand skin jadeite and set it on the stone cutting machine. This piece of jadeite wasn’t big, and the appearance of the skin looked relatively ordinary; there were even black tinea scabs. It was no wonder that Ollie wasn’t optimistic about Lin Luo’s stone selection.
It’s just that Lin Luo knew that the black tinea scabs on his piece of jadeite were live tinea scabs. In the relation between tinea scabs and jadeite, tinea scabs are conducive to the coloration of jadeite, resulting in the phenomenon of black going with green. In other words, under black tinea scabs a person can often find jade.
