Big Data Cultivation - Chapter 32
Wang Weimin was stunned.
However, he laughed the next second. “He even spent time picking up stones. I don’t think he’s able to find high-quality jade.”
Jubao Jewel was a leading jewel brand in the jewel industry of Zhengyang City, and its main business was jade.
Wang Weimin didn’t believe that a guy who ate four hamburger combos in KFC could provide a large amount of jade raw materials.
Although he felt a little guilty, he had to deny it.
Manager Wang sighed and looked at Feng Jun and Manager Liang, who were talking not far away from them. Feng Jun knew to seize the best timing to ask for a reasonable price, and he was determined and generous too, which proved that he was outstanding among his peers.
Manager Wang felt that Feng Jun must have high-quality jade with him.
Manager Liang didn’t have much anticipation, and he simply wanted to purchase jade and embarrass Jubao Jewel at the same time.
Therefore, when he saw the other half of the broken jade box, he was surprised. “Young man, what do you mean?”
Feng Jun smiled. “Relax, I’m going to sell you more jade.”
“Great, I can give you sixty thousand yuan for this half,” said Manager Liang.
He aimed to purchase jade instead of antiques.
Feng Jun nodded. “Deal. To be honest with you, you can put the two halves of the jade box together, and they’ll be perfect together.”
Sixty thousand yuan wasn’t a lot, but it was a reasonable price.
Manager Liang wasn’t a mean jewel businessman.
“I’m not interested.” Manager Liang shook his head.
This jade box looked quite ordinary, so he wouldn’t be bothered to put them together or repair it. He decided to use it as a raw material to make more money.
Feng Jun smiled. “Sure, it’s up to you.”
Manager Liang gave him a glance and had a better impression of him because he knew when to stop the topic.
The next second, he noticed Feng Jun’s backpack, and it looked heavy. “Do you have other jade in your bag?”
This jade box was ancient, so he believed that Feng Jun had more good old jade crafts.
Feng Jun laughed. “I have a piece of rare jade with me. Are you interested in it?”
“Of course!” Manager Liang was excited. “Henglong Jewel focuses on jewel instead of antiques.”
Feng Jun nodded. He then took out a large stone the size of a man’s head.
The second Feng Jun put it down on the ground, Manager Liang rushed ahead to touch it.
After a while, he got even more excited and took out his magnifier to observe it.
In the end, he shouted aloud, “I can’t believe it! It’s a huge mutton fat jade seed material.”
Feng Jun beamed once he heard that. Even though he didn’t know much about jade, he understood what mutton fat jade meant. It was the best nephrite, and a seed material was more valuable than a mountain material.
According to the understanding in the industry, the seed material was washed out by river water over the years, so it had a good color and oiliness with a finer texture.
It was exactly what Feng Jun expected to see.
If one gram was worth ten thousand, this seed material could be worth about three hundred million yuan in total!
Actually, a piece of good mutton fat jade could be sold at the price of thirty thousand yuan a gram.
Anyway, Feng Jun was sure that he could make a fortune with this jade raw material.
Manager Wang also heard their conversation, and he rounded his eyes in shock when he learned that it was a huge mutton fat jade seed material.
Wang Weimin’s face turned pale too, and he shouted, “No, impossible! It can’t be a seed material.”
“What’s wrong with you?” Manager Liang turned around and gave him a cold glance. “Are you questioning my knowledge?”
Manager Liang was in his early forties, but he was a well-known jade expert in the industry.
“Well, I mean…” Wang Weimin hesitated for a long while. He then clenched his teeth while pointing at Feng Jun. “He’s too poor to have such a valuable jade raw material.”
“Enough!” Manager Wang roared. “Weimin, you should go now.”
At this moment, he was quite disappointed in his nephew.
“No, I can’t leave now.” Wang Weimin raised his voice. “He can only afford hamburger combos in KFC, so it’s impossible that he’s able to have a mutton fat jade seed material.”
It was hard for Wang Weimin to accept it.
Actually, he regretted holding a grudge against Feng Jun now.
The most valuable resource of the jade industry was clients who could provide rare jade.
In addition to that, jewel businessmen wanted the top jade raw materials most.
Jade was a non-renewable resource, and its amount was limited. Except for those that hadn’t been discovered yet, the amount of jade that had been discovered was certain and wouldn’t increase.
The jewelry industry was also a typical luxury industry. The more top-quality goods it had, the more profitable it could be.
If Jubao Jewel lost this mutton fat jade seed material, another jewelry store would have it.
Wang Weimin was unwilling to see that happen.
It was all his fault that he took Feng Jun lightly.
What was worse, if he hadn’t had a grudge against Feng Jun, he wouldn’t have ruined the first deal between his uncle and Feng Jun.
His uncle was about to make a deal with Feng Jun when he just came, but it was ruined by him.
As long as Feng Jun was willing to make the first deal with Jubao Jewel, they could strike the second and third deals in the future.
“So?” Manager Liang looked at Wang Weimin.
He didn’t think it was a big deal. “My son eats KFC often too.”
However, it was still different in Wang Weimin’s eyes, but he didn’t dare to say another word about it now.
Manager Wang was mad and even wanted to slap his nephew.
All his nephew had done today was humiliating him in public.
“Alright, you can go now. Don’t feel guilty or stressed. It’s just a piece of jade,” said Manager Wang.
He couldn’t change what had already happened anyway.
Manager Liang offered a price to Feng Jun afterward. “Six million yuan.”
“What?” Feng Jun couldn’t believe his ears.
“Are you surprised?” Manager Liang stared at him. “Is it lower or higher?”
“Lower. The jade of water type was sold at 6.89 million yuan just then,” said Feng Jun. He was quite honest.
“They’re totally different.” Manager Liang curled his lips. “Not many people like Hotan jade now.”
Feng Jun also knew it. Although the price of Hotan jade was always rising, it wasn’t stable.
Nevertheless, he was still unwilling to accept the offer.
“Manager Liang, it’s a mutton fat jade seed material, and it should be more expensive than other common jade,” said Feng Jun.
Manager Liang didn’t know what to say now as he looked at the young man in front of him.
He was a businessman, and he hated to teach outsiders knowledge about jade, but he was in a good mood today, so he explained it to Feng Jun patiently.
“There are different levels of mutton fat jade seed materials. Look at the outer layer of your stone. I’m sure it’s of medium quality. It’s not from western Xinjiang, or Korea, nor Russia.
“I don’t want to ask where you got it, but it’s not from the best sources of jade, so its price can’t be very high.
“Oh, wholesale and retail prices are different too. When we make jade crafts, there will be an unavoidable loss.”
“Alright!” Feng Jun interrupted him. Even though he was still disappointed at the price, he felt much better now. Most importantly, Manager Liang didn’t ask him for the source of this jade raw material.
In that case, he could enter the wilderness space whenever he wanted and search for more jade raw materials to make money.
Six million yuan was already enough for him to do his business, and he thought that he shouldn’t be greedy.
Therefore, he nodded with a smile. “I know Manager Liang is a generous businessman, so I’ll sell it to you at six million yuan. We can be friends.”
Manager Liang laughed. “Great! The six million yuan is just the starting price. You can follow me to our store to cut it open now. I can probably give you a higher price for it.”
