But this year there was such a surprise. This is definitely going to cause a stir in the gemstone betting field.
An ZiYi and Le ZhengTian were both immensely proud observing the adoring and envious gazes from the crowd. In her heart, she was excited. In her second chance at life, she could finally become the one that others envied.
“Congratulations, congratulations, Le family head.”
“Right, you are so fortunate to gain such a great daughter-in-law.”
“Miss An skills are quite strong, I hope to have the chance to collaborate with Le family soon.”
There were many hoping to take advantage of the situation, kissingup in hopes of creating a relationship with Le family. Hopefully, they would be able to ask for An ZiYi’s help in the future.
“Please, please. It’s my son who has good eyesight.” Le ZhengTian responded with a gentle chuckle.
The surrounding people echoed his sentiments, “Right, Young Master Le has good eyesight.”
The smart ones didn’t say anything at all and remained neutral. They could obviously hear that their arrogant words was directed at Xun family. They were implying that Le ChenXi had good eyesight so he dumped Xun family’s Miss Xun and replaced her with a commoner girl.
Hehe…they really were brainless. Miss Xun hadn’t even finished revealing her stones yet. But even if she did lose to Miss An, she still had Boss Mo supporting her.
Who dared to be so stupid as to mess with her? Those people must be thinking they’ve lived for too long.
On the one side, Le family was filled with jubilation. Meanwhile, it didn’t seem like Xun family on the other side was too affected.
But there were still people hoping that some mocking and ridicule would get them on the good side of Le family. “I think this Miss Xun doesn’t even know anything about gemstone betting. Up until now, she still hasn’t been able to reveal any green yet. Maybe there isn’t even any in there.”
“Based on her actions, she seems to know what she’s doing. But could it only be for show?”
“Don’t mention it, those raw materials that appear green on the outside are already considered a big risk. She wouldn’t be thinking that since the outside was green, that the inside would also show green?”
“Hahahaha….That could be it!”
“This young girl is about to lose her face.”
“She should just quickly go home to avoid losing to the point of crying later on.”
Father Xun was holding Mother Xun’s hand this whole time, whispering in comfort. “Believe in Qearl. She won’t disappoint us.” He was also angry in the face of these people’s jeering, but he understood his daughter.
Mother Xun furiously glared at those sneering people, hating Le family in the bottom of her heart. It’s all because of that damned Le ZhengTian. The one who had proposed arranged marriage was their family. Now, the ones that were breaking the promise was also their family. Did they really think that Xun family were just fool of pushovers.
XunMi wasn’t disturbed by these external noises. She carefully sliced into the raw material. Perceiving the position of the energy currents, she began using the whetstone to polish the stone.
Soon, the clear shiny color revealed itself to XunMi. XunMi raised an eyebrow. This seems to be…
Her hands began moving faster. By the time she had brought out the entire jade, almost 10 minutes had passed.
“My God, it’s actually nephrite!” (T/N The exact translation is the old crater ice type of jadeite) Someone in the crowd shouted with shock. Everyone turned in unison to the other size of the stage.
The pure color and smooth texture made it look almost translucent. It was hard to tell the specific type of jade with the naked eye. The light was able to directly pass through the jade. The color and solid texture revealed that it was a pure and high quality jade.
Nephrite was already rare. The sudden appearance of the rare jade type worth tens of millions, especially one that was as big as the palm of the hand, left viewers in disbelief.
XunMi played with it in her hands before beginning to splitting the second stone. In an instant, everyone became speechless.
An ZiYi’s three stones were already cut open. She had two Furong types with one being a scattered irregular dark green QingHua FuRong type. She also had a relatively large LanHua type that was an oval shape of about 10 centimeters.
FuRong type was still considered a high quality type but her jade just wasn’t that big. The QingHua FuRong type would be limited in terms of repurposing for carving or tessellation. Based on the market value, the three pieces were worth about 100 million in total.
This temporarily had An ZiYi ahead of XunMi. But if XunMi’s next piece was a LanHua or Golden type, then she was set to win.
An ZiYi’s hands turned pale as they grasped tightly onto her jade pieces. Her whole body was strained, glaring at XunMi’s hand as if she was about to make a dive for the contents inside her grip.
XunMi placed down the splitting equipment and used the whetstone. This time, she polished for a while without seeing signs of green. Just as the crowd was letting out a disappointed sigh, XunMi stopped polishing.
She beckoned forward the judges. They immediately brought over a cup of water.
XunMi poured the water directly over the stone in her hand, allowing the water to reveal the radiance of her stone.
Green, dark green. A thick green that made people suck in a breathe. This was a pure green jadeite!
“Oh, I don’t even have the words. Miss Xun actually produced two high quality jades!”
“Quickly, pinch me. Make sure I’m not dreaming.”
“I think I’m in a parallel fantasy. Why does gemstone betting seem so easy today?”
Indeed, An ZiYi had uncovered three jades and now XunMi had found two more.
Nephrite and green jadeite! She didn’t even need to open the third stone, this competition was Xun family’s.
“Boss, did you predict this already? That’s why you didn’t have me stop those people making comments?” Guan Xiao watched the surprise twist of events below in amazement and sudden realization.
Mo WenHan twirled a glass of red wine in one hand, “No, it’s because I believe in her.” She was worth his trust. For this woman, no matter what she did, he felt like she would be able to succeed.
Guan Xiao didn’t say anything, watching his boss’ eyes fill with joy while he muttered in his heart. It looks like Miss Xun will really become the boss’ wife, she can’t escape anymore. It was no longer just a joking title of ‘madam’ but the real deal.
“Will Miss Xun be splitting the third one?” A judge returned from his shock and stepped forward to respectfully ask.
No matter how amazing the gemstone betting master that Le family brought over was, she won’t be able to beat XunMi. Not only were her skills above her opponents, even her status was above An ZiYi’s.
At this moment, XunMi had already won. Her family’s status also went up in rank. Her own social status will also continuously rise.
To create a good impression on her now would be the wisest move.
“Miss Xun, will you be selling your nephrite? I’m willing to pay 30 million.”
“I! I, I will bid 40 million!”
“I’ll bid 40 million for the green jadeite!”
. . .
The people that had just been mocking Xun family a moment ago were now remorsefully listening to others bid. They wanted to follow suit but they were afraid that their previous behavior would be remembered, causing them to lose face.
The even more resentful person Le ZhengTian. He didn’t expect XunMi would have such precise gemstone betting abilities.
