Jade cutting、polishing、carving, grinding
After picking a stone from Kunlun Mountain, the first step is “cutting” inside: cut the stone in the middle, open to see whether or not here is jade inside the stone, inside some stones does not have the jade, inside some stones has the bulk jade, which may be made into the priceless handicraft; Then carve the stone into jade, according to the jade original stone shape, carve the stone into jade pendant 、jewelry、the cups 、plate and small dish, the statue of Buddha so on, this entire process is called carving. The second step is polishing and grinding. The first and second processes is that one person can not do, so they say that we learn; after the two processes one person can do, so let me say that Sato. Raw jade materials without going through "carving and polishing" processes, it is impossible to become a valuable handicraft, people who has not accept education and a serious study do not know what to do, what not to do, they will not behave. So, "Three Character Classic" referred to: stone do not cut, can not be jade, and people do not learn, will not know justice.
Let us compare Stones with Jades!

A memorable day
There is an old saying: "Jade is not cut, can be made into nothing ," as well as this saying , jade not born so beautiful, it also needs to be careful craftsmen cut and polish, we have to see how those uncles process jades !
In a spring afternoon, our team came to the jade factory under the leadership of teachers. I saw where there is not much difference between the common stones with the original stones of jade, and how can I have this absolutely beautiful to see the same as in which the jade? I was attracted by an uncle with a small rotating machines in his hands when I was being puzzled I asked the uncle what he was carrying, uncle patiently said: "Oh, children, it’s a grinding-jade machine which is designed to polish jade and its name is grinding machine." The uncle was beginning to grind, as the same time the white powder from the grinder on both sides continually dust into everywhere. We can see that this uncle is working very hard, I am his uncle said: "Uncle, you fortunate suffers," the uncle smiled calmly and continued the work. I knew the pretty jades in stores which loved by people that were carved by uncles little by little, they are really great too! "Jade is not cut, can be made into nothing ", then I seem to feel that there has been a new meaning: "Only one person received a good education can become a useful people."
A uncut gem does not sparkle
" if the jade is not cultivated, it is not the ornament."This sentence has been passed down to this ancient. It means that do not cut and polish jade, it can not become a beautiful jade. Now, it is usually used to educate their children. If you do not educate their children, then children will not become professionals. Today, in Qinghai Museum of Land and Resources, we saw a very beautiful piece of carved jade. Piece of jade has a very good-looking appearance: Sugar color, white, green, it looks vivid. Aunt told us that sugar color jade has less value than white color, but it is up to you how to arrange the colors in pairs. Like this jade, the sculptors use the colors cleverly. Using of sugar color and white sugar together with green color there. This is called color Qiao .This coupled with a very fine cut and polishes jade, and make this painting of mountain and water portrait very vivid. Exposure to the beauty, people are not able to extricate themselves out. My feelings at this piece of jade is this: at the foot of the mountain, where people play chat; rows of trees until the mountains; it should be a little green shoot is already germination; and sugar color is Hill, I think, is because that the mountain has just been rain, it is just under the colored sugar over the traces of light drizzle. This is really too beautiful! So beautiful the people are carved out of jade, which are created by people of wisdom. This is shown even more if we do not cut and polish jade can not be turned into exquisite jade. It should be a sentence: if the jade is not cultivated, it is not the ornament.
The jade cannot be made into anything without being cut and polished

In the "Three Character Classic," the saying goes, "“The jade cannot be made into anything without being cut and polished”. People do not learn, they do not know justice." That is to say these two phrases mean if jade is not through a careful cutting and polishing, will not be able to become a beautiful jade. If a person does not learn, he will never understand the reason .Yes, a beautiful jade, if no one to cut and polish it; it is just a piece of uncut stone forever. The same sense, a person, no matter how smart he is, if he does not have the heart to learn, it will never be a knowledgeable, erudite and informed people.
