Many visitors to China like to buy some jade. But do you know that a great number of the jade jewelry is made of stones. Follow me to say how the stones are turned into valuable jade.

Raw material: stones

Glue injection also needs several days. Then, the stones will be polished to the wanted shapes.

The well-done jade bracelets. Some are sold at rmb100-200, and some can be sold at a price as much as rmb70,000-80,000.

China, the promised land of cheaters.

Just watched on TV how a piece of pork was put to a kettle and BING! out came a piece of beef.

I imagine spokesman Mao had a terrible itch because people still scratch him every time they get a hundred yuen bill. Of course there are itching bills here too, but they are so rare that there is no need to scratching every bill.

Cheap Timex-watches I have seen at the mediterraen tourist places but in GZ they were definitely the cheapest of all times.

I made some inquiries to find an artist who would make me paintings from my photos. One did send me photos of his paintings. They were very good, very professional. My wife did know a few of them. I did not know before that painters in China could live over 300 years.

The list goes on and on.

Is there anything real any more in China?

I have thought the fake jade is at least made of jade powder or glass. So sad it turned out to be rough stones.

Don't buy any souvenir at any tourist attraction. This is my rule.

GUEST2931 I say Chinese people are really genius. They can make a stone into a pair of jade bracelet, pork into beef etc.
