Samsung’s Galaxy SII helped a geologist unearth inherited jades in the ancestral home, local weekly Popular News Journal reported.

“A contour was drafted with the use of an app measuring the magnitude of magnet and the exploration was made at the site where the magnitude goes highest,” Dr Soe Thein said.

The jades were hidden under the wooden floor of the home in a pot as his forebears feared the danger of thieves and dacoits.

The proceeds from the gem stones goes to charity in memory of his late ancestors, he said.
