I TRANSMIGRATED AS THE ANTAGONISTS' MOTHER! - Chapter 165 - 165 Limited Skills
165 Limited Skills
There were only three experts left, and they occupied two stalls. Jobs and Vivian occupied one stall to collect the goods.
There were many people looking around. Vivian learned how to estimate the price of the goods and judge the value of the goods based on the parts of the Jade that were visible. After a while, Jobs went to the bathroom, and Vivian guarded the stall alone.
In this era, the M Country was not very friendly to women. In the tide of gender equality, they still stubbornly followed the tradition of men being superior to women. Vivian was wearing a large gray sportswear today, her hair was tied up in a bun, and she wore a mask that covered half of her face. One reason was to prevent dust, and the other was to keep a low profile.
When people saw her gender, they would go around to show it to others. Just when Vivian thought she would not be able to get any goods by herself, a thin old man in a thin coat with his back bent came to Vivian.
The man looked around cautiously, and after making sure that no one was paying attention to him, he lifted his clothes slightly and quickly took out a piece of raw stone from a cloth tied to his stomach and put it on the table. The raw stone was the size of two fists, and there was only a square window of five centimeters in length and width on the surface. “Boss, what’s the price for this stone?”
Just by looking at the green jade from the window, Vivian could tell that it was definitely a good piece of material.
Vivian’s eyes lit up as she picked up the stone. The cold feeling made her frown.
Vivian began to observe the stone from the surface. No matter how she looked at it, she felt that the value of the stone would not be bad. She looked up at the seller and asked, “Where did you get this raw stone from?”
After the old man heard the interpreter’s words, he immediately replied, “Mowan Base.”
From the surface characteristics of the stone, Vivian also determined that it was from MowanBase, but she still wanted to confirm it.
Mowan Nase was one of the four trump mines and also the one with the best materials. The overall quality of their products was very high, so the price was naturally not cheap. The raw stone in Vivian’s hands, which was not considered big, could be sold for 180 to 200 thousand yuan in the market.
Vivian touched the flashlight on the table and shone it on the surface, but she still couldn’t see anything wrong with the stone. That was why she was even more puzzled.
The color was good enough, and the water contained was not bad either. It was at least at the level of glutinous ice type. Unless it was an Emperor Crack, it would not feel cold to the touch. However, the surface of this raw stone was very old, and the probability of this happening was almost zero.
However, it was difficult for even the gods to judge an inch of Jade. Vivian suspected that it was because her level was limited that she could not judge it, so she called the experts she had invited to take a look together. During this time, she pretended to inadvertently glance at the old man who was selling the goods and found that he was watching their every move calmly.
She didn’t know if it was because of her cheat’s preconceived notion, but Vivian felt something was wrong, but she couldn’t put her finger on it. It could only be attributed to intuition.
The three experts all felt the raw stone was worth buying after looking at it. They suggested that Vivian bid 150000, but the highest bid should not exceed 185000, because they had to consider the cost of the return trip. In addition, this raw stone only had a small opening, and no one could guarantee whether there were any variables in it before they cut it.
Although the experts had the same opinion, Vivian still believed in her goldfinger. There were many cases where experts had misjudged, and her goldfinger was the real Jade detector. After making the decision, Vivian wanted to figure out why there was such a contrast. This was a case of experience. If the goldfinger disappeared in the future, she could also judge it based on her experience.
After Vivian sent the experts away, she picked up the stone again to study it.
“Do you want it, Boss?” the old man urged upon seeing this. “If it’s suitable, I’ll sell it. If it’s not suitable, you can return it to me. I still want to quickly sell it and go home.”
Vivian did not want to drag it out for too long. “I’ll look at it for another 10 minutes. You have to give me some time to make a judgment.”
When the old man heard this, he promoted, “The surface of this material is so good that you can’t guess wrong even if you buy with your eyes closed. Look at how tight the skin is, how shiny the wax skin is, and how green the color is. It’s not an Imperial Green, but a bright green is still good. This quality is also very rare!”
When Vivian heard the translator’s words, she remained unmoved and continued to examine it carefully. At this time, Jobs returned, and Vivian quickly asked him to sit down and help her check.
