Translator: Noodletown Translation Editor: Noodletown Translation
Qingfeng Li said this piece of jade was the Phoenix Jade pendant. Not only did Ting Chen doubt it, all the others had disbelief written all over the face.
Though they had never seen phoenix jade, they’ve heard of it, that it was a treasure worn by Empress Dowager Cixi. It had a pure white appearance, and was crystalline and flawless. But this one had grey mixed up in green with no white color at all.
"Miss Liu, please bring me a porcelain bowl, and then find me a bottle of hydrogen peroxide."
Qingfeng Li turned around and said to Ruyan Liu.
Though not sure what Qingfeng Li wanted it for, Ruyan Liu hurriedly got Fu Liu to do so.
Fu Liu was very efficient and brought over a white porcelain bowl and a bottle of hydrogen peroxide in a moment.
"Take a clear look whether this is the phoenix jade or not."
Qingfeng Li smiled faintly and put the mottled jade into the bowl. He then poured the whole bottle of hydrogen peroxide onto the jade.
The role of hydrogen peroxide is bleaching and the removal of impurities.
With shocked looks from the others, the mottled surface of green and gray began to fall off, revealing the white inside.
10 minutes later, the mottled green and gray all stripped, revealing a piece of crystal Jade pendant.
The Jade Pendant was pure white, glittering and translucent with an elegant color. Its coronet was upright, and the tail feathers were evenly arranged, showing an ingenious design and an elegant figure.
"Phoenix Jade. I never thought that I could see the legendary Phoenix Jade in my lifetime."
Suddenly, an old man shouted and cried in excitement.
Hearing this elder’s words, the people around changed their faces. Because they knew if the elder said this was the Phoenix Jade, then this must be it. No one dared to question the old man's words.
"Young man, can you let me see this piece of phoenix jade."
The elder with grey hair came to Qingfeng Li and said excitedly.
"Qingfeng Li, this man is called Yunchang Xu, the president of the Eastern Sea Antique Association. He is very highly respected."
Xue Lin smiled slightly and gave Qingfeng Li an introduction.
"The President of the Antique Association?"
Qingfeng Li was slightly shocked. Naturally, he’s heard of this association.
The Antique Association, as the name suggested, was the association of antique collectors. The range of antiques varied, including jade, porcelain, bronze, poetry and paintings alike.
"Please have a look, old gentleman."
Qingfeng Li smiled slightly and handed the Phoenix Jade to the elder. He respected this elder a lot.
Seeing this elder reminded him of his deceased grandpa. These two were kind elders.
"It’s been over a hundred years. I finally get to see the legendary Phoenix Jade." The elder named Yunchang Xu stretched out his rough palms and stroked the jade, tears all over his face.
"The old man seems to have stories with this jade?"
Seeing Yunchang Xu cried touching the Phoenix Jade, Qingfeng Li couldn’t help asking.
"Young man, you probably don’t know there are two jades: the Dragon Jade and the Phoenix Jade. When the Eight-Power Allied Forces invaded China, they robbed the Dragon Jade and the Phoenix Jade went missing. It turned out the Phoenix Jade was not gone. "
Touching the Phoenix Jade, Yunchang Xu said excitedly.
He knew that it must be the person who took care of the Phoenix Jade that faked another exterior layer onto the jade to prevent it from being taken abroad.
To fake was to daub a layer of special chemical substances onto the real jade, covering the original appearance. For example, this piece of Phoenix Jade became a mottled jade when daubed with the chemical substances.
Thanks to Qingfeng Li, who saw through the essence of this Phoenix Jade and bleached it with hydrogen peroxide solution, the Phoenix Jade was revived.
"Young Master Chen, Ting Chen, this is the real Phoenix Jade. Apologize to Xue Lin."
Qingfeng Li turned around, looked at the brother and the sister, and said coldly.
Seeing the cold eyes of Qingfeng Li, the two could not help but shudder. They understood that if they did not apologize, they guy in front of them would really break their legs.
Besides, since this piece of Jade was really the Phoenix Jade, they were naturally wrong.
Young Master Chen and Ting Chen lowered their heads, apologizing to Xue Lin, their faces pale.
However, Xue Lin didn’t bother to look at them, but looked Qingfeng Li instead, her beautiful eyes full of shock.
Her husband was really capable. It was incredible to recognize the Phoenix Jade that was lost over a hundred years.
She felt that her husband was like a lucky treasure that always brought her surprises.
"Young man, do you want to sell this Phoenix Jade? I want to buy it."
Yunchang Xu held onto the phoenix jade, reluctant to let go, and looked at Qingfeng Li hopefully.
He was the head of the Antique Association and liked collecting treasures. Especially the treasure from over a hundred years ago which was worn by Empress Dowager Cixi. It held extraordinary meaning to him and his culture.
Seeing Qingfeng Li was ready to speak, the voice of Ruyan Liu came.
"Miss Liu, what can I do for you?"
Qingfeng Li gently smiled and asked.
"I also want to buy this piece of jade. Can you sell it to me?"
On Ruyan Liu’s charming face appeared a touch of excitement and she asked hopefully.
This piece of Jade caused two people to compete. The president of the Antique Association and the CEO of the Liu Corporation.
"Miss Liu, I wonder why do you want to buy this piece of jade?"
Naturally, Yunchang Xu knew Ruyan Liu. He knitted his brows slightly and said with a bit of dissatisfaction.
He made it clear that he wanted to buy it just now. But Ruyan Liu was to set her foot in it, which completely embarrassed him.
"President Xu, I’m not buying for myself, but for an elder in my family." Ruyan Liu smiled in regret and said.
"Is someone in your family sick?"
"Well, I’ll give this to you. This jade is indeed good for longevity and health."
Knowing that Ruyan Liu was buying it for an elder with sincere filial piety, Yunchang Xu naturally felt bad competing for it. After all, he merely wanted to collect it because he was very excited seeing the treasure from over a hundred years ago.
"Qingfeng Li, you can offer a price."
Ruyan Liu smiled charmingly and said to Qingfeng Li.
"If Miss Liu is intending to use this to save a life, then I’ll give you for free."
Qingfeng Li smiled faintly and was ready to give it to the opposing party directly without mentioning money.
"Young man, do you know how much this Phoenix Jade worth?"
Seeing Qingfeng Li was ready to give the jade to Ruyan Liu, Yunchang Xu couldn’t help giving out a gasp of surprise.
"I don't know. "
Qingfeng Li shook his head and said he did not know.
"Lad, let me tell you. This phoenix jade is worth at least 10 million. You still want to give it to her?"
Yunchang Xu looked at Qingfeng Li in amusement. After all the fuss this young man didn’t know the value of phoenix jade at all.
But to tell the truth, even Qingfeng Li knew the value of the jade, he would still give Ruyan Liu for nothing. Because this woman helped himself a lot, not only lending him black chicken, but also her platinum card. Naturally, he wanted to return the favor.
