The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 99.2
The first thing Lin Luo went to check was the selected excellent-quality jadeite. They were basically all jadeite that had very good-looking exteriors, so the review was very fast. After the review was completed, the staff were able to immediately transport the jadeite away to be cut.
The cutting workers who were responsible for cutting the jadeite were all experienced masters.
An ZiHao dutifully followed Lin Luo and registered and entered every piece of jadeite he had screened as a basis for performance appraisal. After the process was completed, the Stone Cutting Department would do it again after cutting each stone, but due to Lin Luo’s cheat-like special ability, they basically wouldn’t be too far off from An ZiHao’s record.
“Who selected this piece?” Lin Luo frowned slightly when he saw a piece of pineapple skin jadeite.
“Yes, that was me.” The speaker was a middle-aged stone gambling expert who had only been with the company for a short time. He had previously worked in other energy companies and had also achieved top results in the stone gambling competition, so he was hired smoothly.
“Mr. Jiang Yan? Can you tell me the reason for assigning this piece of jadeite to the top class?” Lin Luo asked with a serious face. As a shareholder of the company, he could be said to be one of the bosses of the company. Of course he had to be responsible for the company, and if he found a problem, it was natural to raise it immediately.
Jiang Yan was suddenly questioned by Lin Luo in such a formal tone. He touched his nose with a little unease, but soon calmed down and replied, “From the perspective of the skin, this piece of jadeite material looks very good. The mountain stone jadeite with pineapple skin has a high probability of winning bets. This one has a large area of obvious pine flowers at the bottom and a light python pattern, indicating that there’s a high possibility of green inside. Plus the color of the pine flowers is also brighter, so I think that it’s a piece of jadeite that can be classified as excellent in quality.”
Lin Luo glanced at him deeply, then shook his head, “Your observation is too one-sided. The light python pattern you mentioned is gray-green, and it’s not a python band, but a band of tinea scabs. This area of pine flowers that you were very optimistic about is large and colorful, but if you look closely, you can find that this area of pine flowers is only a thin layer floating on the surface, which is a popping pine blossom.”
Pine flowers have always been an important sign for judging whether the jade inside jadeite is green. Although popping pine blossoms are also a kind of pine flower, they’re a very bad type. When popping pine blossoms appear, the internal jade is generally of poor color and coarse texture. Due to its bright color, it’s deceptive and often misidentified.
However for this kind of mistake to happen to a professional stone gambling expert was a bit inappropriate.
As soon as Lin Luo said this sentence, the audience fell almost completely silent. He Kun, who was more familiar with Lin Luo, immediately went up to check it and also used his finger to dig out part of the loose popping pine blossom. As expected, he did indeed find that there was only a thin layer, substantiating what Lin Luo had said, and even elder Gao nodded solemnly.
Jiang Yan was dumbfounded and didn’t know how to react.
Lin Luo sighed, tore off the label on the piece of jadeite, and let the staff take it away. “Be careful next time.”
That being said, performance points still needed to be deducted. If such a large piece of material was cut according to his classification, it would cause waste of time and money. Additionally, because there was a problem with the excellent class categorization, double performance points would be deducted.
Jiang Yan face was hot with a flush of shame, but he had no choice but to nod and accept punishment.
The review of the remaining materials went smoothly, and basically no major problems were found. After reviewing the high-quality materials, Lin Luo asked the staff to send the jadeite to the cutting area.
He then went to the jadeite shelf of the good batch and found a strip of pine flower that slipped through the net. The type of pine flower indicated that the jade inside may have a full jade layer. It was the best pine flower symbol and meant that the jadeite could be classified as excellent. However, a stone gambling expert misjudged the influence of the pine flower and assigned it to the good class. Thankfully the problem was not too big, so they only got a reminder and corrected the label.
The problems in this batch of jadeite weren’t too bad, so the review was completed quickly and without issue.
In the batch of medium jadeite, two more stone gambling experts were deducted performance points for misjudgment. Among them, coincidentally, Jiang Yan was deducted again.
As a new employee, he should have been more cautious about analyzing the raw material, but he hadn’t expected that he would be so careless as to treat dead tinea scabs as live tinea scabs and divide a piece that should have been regarded as inferior quality into the medium quality materials.
Jiang Yan also knew that there was a problem with his performance, and there was a big drop of sweat on his forehead. He had been allocated a total of 20 pieces of jadeite this time. After removing the obvious waste, only 12 pieces could be included in the performance. However, two pieces had gone wrong, including a big mistake that deducted double performance points. It was really rare for him to have such a situation.
The author has something to say:

Yin Ye: Today, because I am a tall, rich and handsome man, I supported the little cutie in front of the entire Empire!
Xing Mo: No! Obviously that was me!
Yin Ye: Oh… you were actually just incidental, who cares about you…
Luo Luo: Wow, Yin brother, you are so kind to me! [Hand over grilled fish]
Xing Mo: [Crying dizzy in the toilet] Luo Luo never handed me grilled fish, *sob sob sob*
#Congratulations to the male lead Xing Mo for starting the “sob sob sob” mode…
