Certain things in this world are more expansive then gold and even diamond, but what are they? The materials you are about to watch range from pharmaceutical drugs to unstable matter discovered by scientists. Scroll through the article to see what is the most expensive substances in the world.
10 – Platinum – $ 48 per gram
A metal only fit for a king, is what King Louis of France said about platinum in the 18th century, thus making it very popular in jewelry. When not used as an accessory, it is also known to be useful in electronics and drugs against cancer.
9 – Créme De La Mer – $ 70 per gram
The product that will keep you forever young, on the outside at least. This is an anti-aging and moisturizing creme is formulated to keep your skin healthy and young for as long as possible. All the hype about this crème originated from a physicist who had a horrible skin accident from an experiment. As treatment, he tried Crème De La Mer an he had stunning results.
8 – Soliris – $ 167 per fluid ounce
Without doubt the most expensive pharmaceutical substance on this planet, used in the treatment of paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria, a rare blood disorder. The results of this, life-threatening disease, is the red cells breaking apart prematurely.
7 – Plutonium – $ 4,000 per gram
If you want to build your own nuclear reactor, then you must get this first, as it’s used to generate nuclear power through fission reaction. But it’s not easy to acquire and be sure to have the police knocking on your day right after purchase.
6 – TAAFFEITE – $ 2,000 – 20,000 per gram
A very stunning gem made out of magnesium, beryllium and aluminum. A million times more uncommon than gold or even diamonds. Additionally, it’s durability is of greater quality than diamonds, explaining why the price of it can be enormous.
5 – Scorpion Venom – 10,000 per fluid ounce
Scorpion venom may sound very threatening and it is, to animals. Only about 25 out of thousands of venoms are deadly to humans. So why is the price so high? Again, it has a medical purpose and scorpion venom contains a very special kind of protein that can cure rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and multiple sclerosis. Thus, making it very useful and expensive.
4 – Tritium – $ 30,000 per gram
A very beautiful radioactive isotope that is formed doing a nuclear reaction. In everyday life, it is used in shops, cinemas and more, as self-illuminating signs. Making you wonder how much they paid for the “Exit” signs everywhere.
3 – Diamond – $ 65,000 per gram
One of the most sought-out after gems in the world, as it has its own light and brightness when looking at it. Though not all diamonds are worth 65.000 $ per gram, it depends on how clean it is, as it’s formed when close to materials like coal, hot temperatures and more.

Another radioactive isotope that is proven very useful in our world. If used in the right equipment it can help to detect explosives (land mines) but is also used in cancer treatment and lots of other things.
The isotope was found in a radioactive area in California, thus why it has its name.
1 – Antimatter – $ 100 trillion per gram
This discovery could produce infinite energy to all of the world and would reduce our Co” outlet by 100%. It can fuel infinite energy to spacecraft, thus making it possible to reach farther distances in the galaxy. So why are we not using it? It’s a chemical reaction and if it’s able to produce that amount of energy, it’s also able to release it, and destroying the entire world and more. If we ever find a way to stabilize such energy, then exiting times lay ahead.
