Title: The 16 Most Expensive Substances in the Nature / world
Post by: kaushik.swe on August 06, 2014, 03:58:15 PM
Here is a list of 16 natural and human made/ processed substances which are the most expensive in the world.

16. Saffron - $11/gram
15. Gold - $56/gram
14. Rhodium - $58/gram
13. Platinum - $60/gram
12. Methamphetamine - $100/gram
11. Rhino Horn - $110/gram
10. Heroin - $130/gram
9. Cocaine - $215/gram
8. Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD) - $3000/gram
7. Plutonium - $4000/gram
6. Painite - $9000/gram
5. Taaffeite stone - up to $20000/gram
4. Tritium - $30000/gram
3. Diamonds - $55000/gram
2. Californium 252 - $27 million/ gram
1. Antimatter - 6.25 Trillion/ gram



Antimatter is composed of antiparticles, which have the same mass as particles of ordinary matter, but have opposite charge and other particle properties. When particles and antiparticles meet, there is a larger release of energy, in the form of high-energy photons (gamma rays), neutrinos, and lower-mass particle–antiparticle pairs.

The reason antimatter is so expensive is that it's very, very hard to make, and does not last long in our regular-particle-filled world: antimatter is currently made in batches that are measured by the number of atoms, and lasts only minutes. The Science Channel website gives one specific hypothetical use of antimatter: long-distance space travel.

among these substances majority are either luxury items to be worn or shown  or addiction items to get devastated.

agree with you. These items are rare in nature (except the drugs). That is why we (human) made them expensive by creating a large demand / willingness to possess such material.
