Chapter 131 – Wearing iron shoes could break what you’re searching for (2)
“It really is difficult.” Apothecary Leng frowned.
Su Luo was completely mystified and was in a perplexed state. She quietly walked to the side and asked Steward Xu. “What are green-ranked crystal stones?”
There were actually people who had never heard of green-ranked crystal stones? Steward Xu was stunned, and with an astonished expression, looked at Su Luo.
“What’s wrong? Is not knowing so strange?”
Steward Xu first nodded his head, then shook his head. Afterwards, he quietly coughed before answering Su Luo. “As everyone knows, if you want to quickly promote your cultivation, there are two ways. One way is to focus and concentrate on practicing, the other way is to absorb the spirit force from a crystal stone. Also, people who follow the first path will definitely not have access to crystal stones, so they can only depend on themselves and practice. It can be said that crystal stones are extremely important to people who practice cultivation.”
There was actually such a thing? Su Luo frowned without a word.
No wonder, before, she was the rumored good-for-nothing,so naturally she would know nothing about practicing cultivation.
Steward Xu continued to say. “It’s said that crystal stones are also divided into seven types based on their characteristics. It follows closely with the spirit strength system, and is divided into: red, orange, yellow, green, cyan, blue and purple, altogether seven types. However, there are very few crystal stones on this continent. Moreover, the most abundant are the three types- red, orange and yellow. There are very few green-ranked crystal stones. As for the three types after that; cyan, blue and purple, they are even rarer.”
Therefore, wanting to find green-ranked crystal stones within such a short period of time, how could it not be an extremely difficult matter?
“With the imperial family’s strength, there ought to be some in the Great Inner Storehouse for materials. However, this place is a great distance away from the imperial capital. Even if you were to ride on the Dragon Scaled Horse, there still won’t be enough time.” Steward Xu was so anxious that he was pacing around in circles in the room.
Su Luo was also worried and anxious.
What crystal stone? In the end, what kind of stuff was it! Let alone asking her to search, she had never even seen it before.
Ling Feng suddenly stood up and directly ran out., leaving behind only one sentence. “I’ll go search!”
Ling Feng took Prince Jin’s writ plate (1) to the garrison within the city. He turned the warehouse there upside down, almost making the provincial governor suffer an anxiety attack. Even then, he was only able to collect three green-ranked crystal stones.
There were a lot of red, orange and yellow crystal stones, but these were only treasures to ordinary people. Whereas to Nangong Liuyun, as a sixth-ranked martial artist, these crystal stones were already useless.
Ling Feng immediately ran to the Mercenary Union and issued a task to collect green-ranked crystal stones.
One green-ranked crystal stone could be exchanged for one hundred thousand gold coins!
This exchange ratio was extremely high, therefore, the entire city became lively from excitement. Countless people began to transmit this information.
Finally, Ling Feng escorted a carriage of stones and returned to the manor.
When Su Luo came out, she coincidentally saw Ling Feng, carrying a basket full of rocks that weighed two thousand kilograms, hurriedly walking into the courtyard.
“Quickly, everyone get a basket of source stones, if anyone can cut out a green-ranked crystal stone, the reward is five hundred kilograms of gold!” Ling Feng heroically said.
Once the order was spoken, suddenly, all the subordinates within the manor were filled with passion.
People, because of wealth, could receive Heaven’s punishment and get wiped out from the earth.
What’s more, this wealth could be gained in an upright and proper manner.
“These are the stones?” When Su Luo’s gaze landed on these stones, she couldn’t help but be somewhat distracted. Why did she feel that these dense mass of stones were somehow familiar-looking, as if she had seen it before in some place?
“These are the source stones for crystal stones.” Ling Feng lowered his voice to explain. “Source stones are very strange, no matter how strong the martial artist, they still cannot see into the stone at a glance. Within these source stones, some only contain regular rocks, while other, once cut, would reveal red ,orange, even yellow and green crystal stones. Without cutting into the source stones, nobody can tell.”
Su Luo fixed her gaze on these dense mass of stones, and a light flashed in her mind. “These are the source stones for the crystal stones?”
1) A writ plate from the royal family is usually a gold, handheld plate that has words carved on it. People holding one from the royal family, basically identifies them and their power. The plate given by the emperor himself represents his words, so everyone would kneel and obey when they see it.
