Extremely curious about the old farmer’s wish, as soon as they received 3 pearls, the experts did not dare to delay, immediately conducting an appraisal.
After the research process, it was discovered that: These three items not only have natural colors inside and out, the surface also clearly shows the changes of time, proving that their materials not at all ordinary.
This is certainly one of the oldest jade forms in China, known as jade (玉璧) and jade (玦).

Three jade items exist from the Spring and Autumn Warring States period, so far dating back nearly 2,000 years. Therefore, although very small, the total value of these three items is up to 200,000 yuan (equivalent to about 700 million VND).
At this point, the whole studio stood up and clapped to congratulate the old farmer “one step out of poverty”. However, this man immediately burst into tears and expressed his disappointment, surprising the experts.
The bottomless greed of boys
Mr. Mac said he was originally from a family of three generations of pure farmers living in Nanchang district, Jiangxi province, China. Although he is not rich, he believes that money is not the most important thing, as long as the family is in harmony, all problems can be solved.
Mr. Mac has 3 sons, now grown up and settled down. Two years ago, his wife suddenly passed away due to a heart attack, life was inherently peaceful and turbulent happened.

Immediately after the death of his mother, the eldest brother made a proposal to his father and two brothers about the division of property in the family. The rice fields and the land were both clearly divided, but sadly, no one was willing to take care of the elderly father who was no longer able to work.
Mr. Mac saw his children arguing fiercely, his heart ached, but because he loved his children and did not want to see them quarrel, he chose to move to a nursing home according to the arrangement of the village committee. Because of this incident, the three Mac brothers were criticized by the villagers for being unfilial, so they forced themselves to divide and take turns taking care of their father.
The old wind wave has not passed, the storm will come again, The youngest brother accidentally discovered his father hiding 3 ancient jade under his pillow. At this time, the three brothers continued to argue fiercely, even resenting their father for not dividing the property thoroughly.
By this time, Mr. Mac had completely lost faith in his 3 sons and no longer wanted to live with any of his children.

Although they no longer have to push each other to take care of their father, their bottomless greed still makes the three brothers tense because of the three treasures their father is keeping. In Mr. Mac’s eyes, this is simply an item left by his late father, so it must be a fake or even a real item, only worth a few small silver coins.
For this reason, Mr. Mac brought these three jade artifacts to the studio, hoping that experts would help him prove them to be fake so that his children would stop arguing.
Unfortunately, things did not go as the old father wanted and the tears he shed showed his helplessness in the face of his children’s greed.
