Really approaching to understand kunlun jade
On March 22, we all went to interview a group of people with many years of experience in jade. There many kinds of jade came into our eyes. We watched the jade while a grandpa was explianing to us. Through the introduction, we have known some of the kunlong jade. Since the kunlong jade is produced in kunlun mountain, it belongs to nephrite. This is kunlong jade to feel very good, and feel very comfortable.. Then, the grandpa showed us a pair of jade bracelet, one from Afghan jade, the other kunlong jade. We saw one white and flawless, another with many defects. I think, the perfect jade bracelet is more expensive than the blemish. But I was wrong, the two price of jade is opposite unexpectedly. I don't understand. The grandpa told we that jade texture and variety determine the prices. This is a typical example. Then, we saw the jade, pendant, hand bead jade as well as some daily uses made of jade, for example, to massage facial small pusher. The Grandpa told us that little pusher massage face with the function of beauty. Because the jade itself has the the function of beauty. Knowing this, more has deepened our understanding of the kunlun mountains. This visit and interview let us approach and know the wisps plateau kunlong jadereally.

Beautiful jade in the kunlun mountains
This morning, we went to the interview a a grandfather who knows jade well Seeing our enthusiasm ,he introduced for us to his shop, including the jade jade, jade of history, culture, classification and named. In the store, we saw the white jade, green jade, purple jade and TangBao jade and inky jade. Grandpa took a piece of greenjade to show us. What we saw is black, jasper ah? Seeing our doubts Grandpa picked up a small flashlight from the table, lighting to the end of jade, the whole jade become green now. Grandpa said the darker jasper jade is the most valuable. Grandpa took a small joke: he took a jade without any flaw, and took a jade bracelet with flaw. Two of the texture are very good now, then he asked us, which is better. Of course, we think the one without any flaw. He smiled that actually the defective one is the most valuable, and the price is 10 times higher than that without any flaw because the defective one is real kunlong jade, and the other is from Afghanistan, particularly fragile .We are very surprised.
Through the ages, jade always is the symbol of wealth and power in the ancient times. People can see it in the royal, or in the office now, even in the jade bank or rich family people can see the mythical wild animal jade. Nowadays the higher price kunlong jade has, the more valuable it is. We took all the good things with jade. Even the Olympic MEDALS with the kunlong jade, the position of it is visible in our hearts.
The grandfather said emotionally: "The kunlong jade is now driving qinghai tourism and economic development, we should know kunlong jade, love kunlong jade, know Qinghai, love Qinghai. Kunlun jade a reaction to the culture in qinghai province."
