A man who seems to be from Shanghai examined the stone intently, passing over every facet with a special flashlight. After a long while, he turned to Hu Dengming. "Sir, this is indeed an exceptional gem. If you are willing to sell it to me, I can pay 300,000 yuan."
"Three hundred thousand?!" Hu Xinyi almost cried out when he heard it. He never imahined that the stone left by Gao Shan could sell for so much.
Still, Hu Dengming sat calmly at the table. He said to the jeweler, "Thank you for letting me know that this stone is a precious jewel. But I'mso sorry, it belongs to my friend and we have to return it to him. No matter how much it's worth, we can't sell it."
