Shocking : Miners discover giant Jade boulder worth £140m

Jade boulder found in Burma by miners

Talk about hitting the lottery! Miners in Burma have discovered a giant boulder-sized Jade rock worth  £140million.

Weighing 175 tonnes and measuring 9ft high and 18ft long, this is one of the world’s most valuable pieces of Jade.

The miners were searching for rare gems at a remote mine in Kachin state when they made the whooping discovery.

This Jade piece is second only to the carved statue at the Jade Buddha Palace in China which weighs a whopping 260 tonnes.

According to reports, Burma is the world’s largest producer of Jadeite and gets half its GDP from the $50 billion a year industry.

The piece will soon be sent to China where it would be cut into smaller, wearable or sizable pieces as jewelries or sculptures.
