无价之宝【wú jià zhī bǎo】

Recommended Posts

During the Warring States Period, a farmer dug out a square jade that was 30cm wide when he was farming. He gave the jade to his King. His King asked an expert in jade to examine, the expert said, “Congratulation my King! You get a rare precious stone.” His King asked, “How much does it cost?” The expert answered, “You can’t buy it with money. One who spends the price of 5 cities on it can only have a look.” His King was happy and rewarded the farmer. 


[Definition] When something is rare and invaluable.
