At first glance, this tree root is nothing, but when you look closely, you can see that it actually forms an old Taoist form of fairy wind tunnel bone. Although it is not as vivid as the carved image, it is better than natural shape.
“Interesting.” He Ruixiang took the root of the tree and looked left and right. The more he looked, the more he liked it.
“The more you look, the more you look like an old Taoist(Chinese Idiom).”
The relatives and friends around us are more and more fond of it. If it’s carved from a piece of wood, it’s not surprising. It can be bought everywhere, but it’s so natural that they’re afraid it’s hard to find a second piece under the sun.
When Yang Wei saw the tree roots, she showed a funny look, but when she saw them clearly, she could not help looking at them. She wondered where Su Jing had got such a top-quality tree root.
Shen Hong stared at the tree root for a while. His pupils suddenly shrank and his body trembled slightly. He turned to Su Jing and a trace of regret flashed on his face. If he did see it correctly, the tree root should be red sandalwood root, probably with those purple sandalwood roots from last time. If he had behaved generously at the beginning, he may have gotten this root at that time and maybe Su Jing could’ve even taken out the root of the tree last time. Compared with this one, the ones he bought before are all garbage.
“A’Jing, I can’t accept this tree root.” He Ruixiang stared at the root for a long time and suddenly became cautious. He held the root carefully, as if holding a precious treasure, for fear of being damaged.
“Teacher, this is a child’s heart, you don’t like it?” Su Zhenyue said.
“Of course I like it, but it is too valuable.” He Ruixiang shook his head.
“Valuable?” Su Zhenyue was stunned. It’s obviously just a tree root. I don’t know where A’Jing picked it up from. It may be worth a few hundred yuan, but it shouldn’t be worth much. Ye Qin also looked at the root with surprise and curiosity.
“Dad, If you like it then accept it, and I’ll return something of equal value to A’Jing,” He Jingdong said.
“Brat, you can’t afford this gift.” He Ruixiang smiled.
“A tree root, I can’t afford it?” He Jingdong looked like he didn’t believe it.
“It’s nothing but…” He Ruixiang’s eldest son and second daughter, both of whom could see a clue, look at the root but they were not expert and couldn’t guess what the tree root is, but they dared not make a decision, afraid of making mistakes.
“Old Hong, come and see it.” He Ruixiang told Shen Hong.
“Good.” Shen Hong could hardly wait. If it hadn’t been a gift from other people’s disciples and grandchildren, he would have liked to come forward and grab it. He went up, trembling slightly, took over the root, looked carefully and his eyes become even brighter.
“What is the value of this tree root?” He Ruixiang asked.
“This…” Shen Hong frowned and thought for a moment, glancing slightly at Su Jing. “I’m not sure.”
“Ha-ha.” He Ruixiang took a look at Shen Hong’s face and smiled meaningfully. He took the root of the tree and handed it to Su Jing. “A’Jing, I received your gift, but you still have to take it back.”
“All right.” Su Jing didn’t push back and forth. He also had some understanding of He Ruixiang’s character and knew that he would never accept something that he said he won’t.
“Teacher He, is this tree root so expensive?” Many people in the room expressed doubts, knowing that He Ruixiang had received gifts worth at least 100,000 yuan and it would be nice to get a gift in return of the same value. But this tree root, It looks like it won’t be worth more than 200,000 yuan.
“A’Jing, do you want everyone to look at it carefully?” He Ruixiang said, intending to show off a little, although he did not receive the gift but this gift was sent to him, representing the vision and filial piety of the disciple, He is quite Proud.
“OK.” Su Jing did not refuse and put the tree root on the table, but he only let others look at it and did not let others touch it.
“Young man, how about this root being transferred to me? I’ll pay 200,000.”
“I’ll pay 250,000.”
“I’ll pay 300,000.”
Among the guests, in addition to relatives and teachers, there are some friends of He Ruixiang’s children, all of whom are businessmen. They obviously also took a fancy to this tree root and actually want to spend money to buy it.
“Teacher He’s birthday party is still going on. Do you think this is a vegetable market?” Shen Hong said in a righteous and honest voice but he was anxious in his heart, he thought that he would talk to Su Jing in private later and buy the tree root. Who knew that his plan will be destroyed halfway.
“It’s fine, Let’s just watch the show.” He Ruixiang smiled and waved his hand.
“But… this…” Shen Hong couldn’t find an excuse. The Man of the hour didn’t mind this and he wanted to watch the show. He suddenly walked to the tree root and shouted, “I’ll give you half a million.”
“…” All the people in the audience were speechless. Who was it that just said that this was not a vegetable market? At the same time, everyone was amazed at the fact that this tree root is not only worth 200,000, but it has already reached a value of 500,000. He Jingdong is a little stunned. The roots he despises are so expensive that he can’t afford to return the courtesy, as his father said.
“Mr. Su, could you please keep this tree root for a while? I’ll ask professional Appraiser to identify it and then make an offer.” Among the businessmen, a tall middle-aged man thought for a while before he said. Obviously, he was not willing to give up the root, but he could not see the specific value. Now the price for it has reached 500,000 and it is not a small number.
“Isn’t Old Mister Shen is an Appraiser of Myriad Treasures Auction House?” Someone pointed at Shen Hong and said.
“I…” Shen Hong was so anxious that he wanted to slap the person who pointed out his identity. He had already seen that the root was absolutely valuable and will probably go for a high price. The reason why he was vague at first was that he did not want it to be known and wanted to buy it himself. However, his identity is revealed now, If he didn’t appraise it now then he would lose his reputation.
“Good, Old Hong, you don’t have to worry about it. Do you think I will let you take advantage of my Disciples? Say honestly, what is the value of this tree root?” He Ruixiang laughed, apparently seeing through Shen Hong’s deliberate concealment from the beginning.
“All right.” Shen Hong, with a helpless face, gave up the idea of picking up the leak and took a deep breath. “First of all, this root is red sandalwood root, no matter what shape it is, it is of great value. Secondly, the old Taoist image of the tree root and fairies has a very good moral and is very popular, and has great collection value. Such a pure natural red sandalwood root, I am afraid that you will not find a second in the whole world. This is the so-called exotic goods. I can’t estimate its specific value, but I can guarantee it in the name of Appraiser. It’s worth at least three million yuan.
“Wow,” the whole audience was shocked.
