A Giant Jade Stone Weighing 175 tonnes uncovered in Myanmar

According to BBC report and other authentic media, a giant jade stone has been unearthed in Myanmar. The stone is 4.3m (14ft) high and 5.8m (19ft) long, and is reportedly worth an estimated $170m (£140m).

It was found in a mine in the jade-producing Kachin state, in the north of the country.

Local politician U Tint Soe said the piece of jade was as big as two small houses.

“I assume that it is a present for the fate for our citizens, the government and our party as it was discovered in the time of our government. It’s a very good sign for us,” he said.

Myanmar, also known as Burma, is the source of nearly all of the world’s finest jadeite, a near-translucent green stone. Myanmar half of the GDP is depending upon Jade. China is its biggest market as Chinese takes jade as ” stone of heaven”.
