I've been wondering about that for a while now. You're carrying it instead of putting it in your backpack. It's pretty heavy, isn't it?

"Well, can you take a look at it for me?

 Haruka opens one of the leather bags and pulls out a crystal ball, and I open the other one and place it next to it.

 I can't find any difference at all when I put them together like this.
 Size, clarity, color, and unblemished surface.

 If it were an industrial product, wouldn't it be next to impossible to polish a crystal by hand and make it into a ball of this size?

 Or is it possible for a great craftsman to do it?
 This is not a man-made crystal, but a dungeon crystal.

This is a ...... crystal? That's amazing. It's quite a treasure, especially when it's this big.

"...... Oh, it's worth something too, of course.

 In the event that you're looking for the best way to get the most out of your business, you'll be able to get the most out of it.

 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for.

 For example, it's a little too big to be displayed in my room, but I'm sure there are rich people who would like it.

Are crystals really expensive?

I've heard that good wizards and alchemists can make crystals, but at this size, they're quite expensive.

...... Oh, it's quartz, you know, crystal.

 I'm not sure what to make of it.
 But Toya seemed to be a little bothered by his words.

"Hey, Nao. Is quartz a quartz? Quartz is like quartz glass or something like that, right?

"Yes, it is. That's right. Chemically speaking, it's silicon dioxide.

 It's the same material as the bath tub we made.
 If my magic hadn't failed.
 It's cloudy, but I guess my magic isn't good enough.

 On the contrary, if the technology of magic improves, as Diora says, it will be possible to make quartz as transparent as this crystal ball.

"So, what is it? A crystal ball is actually a glass ball?

 Yuki chuckled and said to Toya, who looked as if her expectations had been betrayed.

"That's true, depending on your point of view. Over there, they sell synthetic crystal balls, but they're just glass balls. Maybe some of them use sodium glass instead of quartz glass?

 I'm sure you've heard of it, but I'm not sure if you've heard of it.

 As an ordinary student, the only quartz glass I have ever seen is test tubes used in chemistry experiments.

 Most of those test tubes are also made of sodium glass, but some of them are made of expensive quartz glass for experiments with high heat.

 My teacher used to say to me, "They are expensive, so don't break them! I was told.
 In concrete terms, they are 10 to 20 times more expensive.
 Even though they look almost the same and cannot be easily distinguished from each other.

 With this in mind, it is not surprising that some companies use sodium glass as a material for crystal balls.

I'm interested in its value as a crystal ball, but what I want to ask Diora is something else. As I was wondering, it didn't fit in my magic bag. Do you have any idea what kind of magical object it might be?

Yes, I do.

It's not that easy. You have?

 I'm not sure if it's a good idea, but it's a good idea.

I'm not sure. I'm not sure if it's a good idea, but it's a good idea. You can't even carry the parts for that with a magic bag.

 Oh, I see. The Adventurer's Guild installs transfer devices in dungeons, right?
 Do you have knowledge about that? You're the vice president.

It's hard to install them because they're often heavy. They have to be carried deep into the dungeon.

 Normally, they are not carried by hand, but are sent by space-time magic users via 'transport', but it is said that parts that do not fit in the magic bag are difficult for space-time magic in general to work, so that makes things difficult.

Um, so you're saying that space-time magic-related grimoires are incompatible with space-time magic?

Yes, they do. Not all of them, but it's like you can't put a magic bag inside a magic bag.

So I guess this is just another space-time magic related tool?

I'm not an expert, so I can't say. I'm not an expert, so I can't say, but I think it's highly likely. I'm not an expert, so I don't know.

 Diora looked at me like, "You can make a magic bag? But we are only a couple of people.

 I've been able to use magic for a little over a year now.
 We've only been able to use magic for a little over a year now, and we've only been able to modify a few things in the grimoires.
 I don't know anything about research or anything like that.

What do you want me to do? Shall I buy it back? Or should I send it for appraisal? Since it's a magical artifact found in a dungeon, it can be appraised for a standard price.

I'm sure you'll be able to find a way to use it. We'll keep it.

You need to be an expert in that area as well. ....... I can think of a few, like interior design?

 I'm sure you'll be pleased to know that I'm not the only one.

 Other than interior design, the other uses would be related to magic tools and space-time magic, but since we who are involved in them don't know what they are, it would be difficult for Diora to ask us.

 Since we have no use for it at the moment, we might as well sell it, but the downside is that it's not going to be easy to get if we need it in the future.

What to do?

If you're safe, you can keep it at ....... Fortunately, I have the golem material, so I won't have any trouble finding the money for the time being.

That's right. Then, Diora, can you buy these pieces and send one of the safe crystal balls for appraisal?

All right. Then I'll take this one to the back.

Ah! Mr. Diora. I'll carry that in later. It's very heavy.

 Diora tried to lift the crystal ball, but Toya hurriedly held her hand.

"Yes, sir. We'll take it and the pieces with us.
"Is that so? Thank you very much.

 I weighed it when I got home, and it weighed almost forty kilos.
 Plus the debris.
 We left the small pieces behind, but four of them would weigh over 100 kilos.
 Ms. Diora is stronger than she looks, but it's not something an ordinary woman should carry.
 And Mitya, who was carrying it as usual, was quite impressive.

Speaking of heavy, in this dungeon, we found a Rock, a Stone, and an Iron Golem. The only one I brought back was an Iron, can I buy it back?

"An Iron Golem? That's amazing! If you can harvest iron, this is a very promising dungeon!

 I thought I was asking lightly, but what came back was an unexpectedly loud response.
 I'm not sure what to make of it.

"Is it that much?

"Yes. Iron is an important strategic material. Iron is an important strategic commodity, and territories with dungeons where iron golems appear are quite wealthy. --Ah, but it's a very deep place, isn't it? Is there a limit to the number of people who can bring them back? No, depending on how many appear, you may be allowed to set up a transfer device ......? This is the time for our guild to make a breakthrough?

 Diora put her hand on her chin and began to worry, "Mmmm ......".
 It's a great way to make sure you're getting the most out of your money.

 In all honesty, you're lucky to be able to get iron and make money. But when you say it's a strategic item, I'm a little put off.

 But I suppose I should insist on what I should insist on.
 I opened my mouth, somewhat reservedly.
