A jade trader inspects a dissected raw jade stone inside a private house. Traders like this man who has good connections within the jade market, get better information from their networks and make home to home visits hunting high quality stones. He is among the many traders who explain how the payments are made in cash for small to medium amounts and the large amounts would be done via banks or unofficial 'hundi' services.
