The most expensive materials on the planet (16 Photos)


  • Slightlykrazy

    A gram of coke is not that much money.

    • Slightlykrazy

      I wonder where chive gets some of these facts, or double checks them.

      • lgnlgn

        None of the controlled substances on this list are right. Go see for yourself.

        • The_Dood

          The LSD could be… From Wikipedia: "A single dose of LSD may be between 100 and 500 micrograms—an amount roughly equal to one-tenth the mass of a grain of sand… Dosages of LSD are measured in micrograms (µg), or millionths of a gram. By comparison, dosages of most drugs, both recreational and medicinal, are measured in milligrams (mg), or thousandths of a gram."

          By my math, 1,000,000 ÷ 300 (the average of 100 and 500) = 3,333.33. So there should be roughly 3,333 hits in one gram, so 3333 x $5.00 (which is what I've heard is the low price…) = $16,665.00 per gram. So #9 is a low estimate.

    • bjizzle

      totally agree…im in south florida & the uncut.shit goes between 20 & 40..where do people pull these prices out of their asses from??

      • fizzle

        Cheaper in the south, price goes up the farther north you go.

        • Bob

          Love all the coke experts here on theChive haha

          • Underbaker

            I know for 99 cents you can get a whole cup full at McD's with refills. That is my total knowledge on Coke.

            • Daith_Lee

              Why you only have 14 likes at this time is beyond me, lol…

                  Do you know his rectal temperature as well?

              • AdamBaldick


            • treetop

              I see what you did there and it really isn't funny at all

            • AdamBaldick

              now THAT is a deal

            • STU

              That shit kills you man

    • Karl

      Most of this depends on where you are in the world. Last I checked, a kilo of heroin in Afghanistan is only 1k£, and cocaine in Columbia is similarly cheap.

      • Scuba Steve

        That Afghani shit is nothing to be messed with, they have some kick ass hash too… from what I hear <_< >_> Also living in N. Florida we get some pretty bad ass coke for the price, I sure as hell don't pay (nor have I ever <_< o_o >_> )S. Florida prices/quality but it sure as hell beats Boston lol

    • Spike

      Un-cut pure stiff is

    • El burro

      This figure is pretty accurate on what it would sell retail in a pharmacy if you had a legitimate reason to get a prescription for it.

      • matt

        Bollocks. The cost is not in the manufacture, it's in evading law enforcement and propping up organised crime syndicates. If it were to be made by big pharma, coke would cost about $5 per gram, as would meth. Eccys would be under a dollar each.

        Legalise it. Tax it.

    • guy

      neither is meth or heroin

    • des troyer

      i think they are going by street value in the U.S. of pure and uncut.. avg. Kilo runs $22-27k.. so gram wise.. it's about right

      • chris

        except there are 1000 grams in a Kilo so that would make the cost $22-27 per gram not $200

        • lordastral

          damn you and your math skills

    • joeri

      100% pure coke is ..

    • jerry

      pure yes it is.

  • Lisa

    #1 We had a small container of saffron and our cats knocked it over onto the floor. My bf was piiissseddd

    • Dan

      I had a small container of antimatter on my table and the cat knocked it off whole neighbourhood is in a dark abyss…

      • press

        Funny because it's true.

        If someone ever finds the Holy Grail, the cat will break it, then make sure the dog takes the blame.

        Post of the Week to Dan.

      • mattythegooch

        I have a small container of cocaine…………that is all.

        • ndalton


        • thedude325

          Hopefully you didnt' pay $215 a gram. I feel a drug dealer charging that would go out of business very quickly.

          • mattythegooch

            Hahaha!! No shit, right!?

          • ry_linch

            thats about the going price in australia, if not more 😦 stupid trafficking laws make it too hard to get the stuff in…. any of our south american chivers want to shelve a pound and swing by, you'll make yourself some serious coin!!!

          • mikeyyyyyyyy

            no he wouldn't… his customers would go broke very quickly. if you want it, you'll pay for it!

            • thedude325

              Or steal it.

    • penis

      cool story bro,

      • Scuba Steve

        Only in America is is that expensive, go to the middle east/India, it's dirt cheap in comparison. Same thing for Rose Oil. If you can't make it over there, see if anyone of your military friends or contractor buddies can get it for you.

    • mike~

      It's not even worth as much as weed who cares?

      • D-Wiz

        dude, either you're getting ripped off or you're not from Canada. either way you're paying too much for bunk weed

        • mcfadinj

          Who said his weed was bunk? At the least, in Texas, the really good stuff would be 10/gram. AT THE LEAST. More like 20-30/gram here. Really though, I just want to know where he said he was getting bunk weed for that price.

      • Jawbone

        Go ahead and keep sucking that glass dick, then.

    • sheoncebelieved

      I once made a Saffron ale, used an entire oz of the stuff, best beer i've ever made

    • Frédéric Purenne

      The amounts of down vote shows you how much cats are a pain in the ass…

    • GranddaddyPurp

      I had a small container of weed and my friend knocked it over onto the floor. I smoked all that shit

  • boom


    • Vicwick

      Wow! You took your hand off your dick long enough to misspell a word! We're all honored. Thank you.

      Fuck you are not only a loser. You are a loser's loser.
      Both your fathers must be so proud. LOL

  • adsareaids

    I can buy anti-matter? Not sure if joke, or in future. Shut up and take my money!

    • Tube top

      Anti-matter is so 2010. Now if you really want something exotic go for Neutronium.

    • Scientist.

      Youre annoying. Obviously you cant buy antimatter. The figure takes into account all of the money/research time that goes into collecting it. Obviously youre a non scientist.

      • Brutal Deluxe

        Use your vast wealth of scientific knowledge to develop some kind of humor detector and you'll be better off.

      • Joshua Hoogerwerf

        It is also quite obvious that your a dick πŸ™‚

        • GrammarNazi


      • mxitape

        He has a PhD in Non-Science!

        • Scientist

          My PhD is actually in quantum chemistry. I'd write the topic of my dissertation, but you wouldn't be able to understand it anyway. So lets save both of us the trouble.

          • Colmodon

            You're quite obviously a complete a-hole

          • Not a Scientist

            And even if you wrote the topic of your dissertation, I would not give one fuck. And I have a pocket full of them.

          • Brutal Deluxe

            My dissertation is on the ramificiations of fingering your mother. It was quite well-received at the bus depot.

          • Benjy

            It's ok Sheldon,calm down this isn't the typical social convention for this type of forum.

            I work in a hospital and save lives damn near every day. Good luck making your pollutants though.

          • A BiPolar Guy

            well' my dad's dissertation involved force fields way back in 1951 and he could out-math you with half his brain cells tied behind his back, despite being dead for 5 years, so nyah! nyah!

          • riteofshiva

            quantum chenistry huh? the role chemistry plays in sub-atomic particles? really, I would give it a read. Kind of interested to see what your dissertation stipulates, particularly chemistry's role in non-Newtonian physics. nano-elements? the ever elusive humour molecule that seems to miss many people throughout the world?

      • Evan

        u mad bro?!

      • Dabears

        And you should not be on the chive

        Okay mr scientist whatever you say

    • Jason Osborne

      How do you weigh out a gram of it? *Boom* goes the anti-matter!

      • Scientist

        ever heard of density genius?

        • Awesome

          Seriously, you ARE a dick!

        • Brutal Deluxe

          What's a density genius?

        • Jason Osborne

          Hey GENIUS… first, it's a joke…duh. Second, if you actually KNEW quantum chemistry, your answer would have been either "we don't know yet" or "theory predicts that anti-matter particles have the same mass as their partners (confirmed to a degree with anti-protons which have no mass).

          Have to call Bullshit on your claim of a PhD in Quantum Chemistry.

          Scientist, you got burned on here so many times…

          no one likes you, and you probably don't have any friends, would venture to guess you haven't seen a vagina in person before and finally; if asked, I bet your family would all agree you are a total friendless humorless dick

          I'm betting that if you put a well used catchers mitt, a vagina, and a old mop in a police line-up Scientist could not pick out the vagina.

    #11 WTF

    • S.Freud

      I had the same reaction, so I looked it up. It's a rare–very rare–mineral discovered in Myanmar in the 1950s. Until 2005, there were only three painite crystals known to exist. Recent discoveries of new deposits in Myanmar now put the number at over a thousand.

      • Shannon Coverdale

        And now I know. GO JOE!

        • S.Freud

          And knowing is half the battle. . .

      • BType13X2

        what the hell is it used for? wait a second I have an internet connection and google 2 seconds… according to what I just read it is absolutely useless so it shouldn't have any value go go marketing πŸ™‚

        • musclerobot

          Rarity is generally related to price though, not that I think it is a good reason.

          I think bacon is infinitely more useful, but it's like $3 per pound.

    • Kyle

      It looks like a blunt murder weapon…

    • Simon

      Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it's Christmas cake.

      • ret

        You mean fruit cake?

        • _maxPain_

          so they should be able to find some in California right ?

      • HotashNerd


  • @toofast_28

    Wait, you can sell california butt dust for $27 mil per gram? Must be a hell of a drug.

    • NonBrit

      More like a neutron source, which is a lot more interesting than that fizzled joke.

  • Corliss

    I want to be this person's drug dealer…

    • Ppka

      Couldn't have said it better myself^ haha wanna go Halfs? … But I think these have to be prices for 100% pure

      • vince

        Something. Those are outrageous prices. Must be California prices

      • Amarillo

        The meth is right on though.

  • youwish

    Drugs…. that is some expensive coke…. and noway is it more than H

    • Dan

      This is probably talking about pure uncut. Don't trust your local dealer doesn't pul some baking soda in there

      • mee

        usually not baking soda unless ur cookin up crack most guys use b12, baby laxative, quanine, then they will press it or spray it with hair spray to rock it up

        • H addict

          Gonto north Camden in NJ and ask for Cito on 5th & York hell give u a Gram of H for $85

    • chronicLSD

      H is definitely more expensive coke, 1 gram of coke goes in an hour. not the case with H.

  • booooob

    #14 Those guys at de beers must be so proud of how much they've falsely inflated the price of diamonds.

    • LukeTheTerrible

      they truly are marketing geniuses.

      • bbbrad567

        It doesn't take a genius to know that if you have a monopoly you can charge as much as you want for anything.

        • Anomanom

          It's not the monopoly as much as the genius of getting people to want diamonds so much that they will pay obscene prices.

          • truth

            It actually is called price fixing. Currently there is a class-action lawsuit against De beers for this.

            • Fuck De Beers

              which is going to lead to absolutely nowhere. A syndicate that rich and powerful and wicked will never have to pay. They've got everyone by the balls. The solution? Don't buy fucking diamonds. It's just a shiny piece of compressed carbon that is extremely abundant.

        • Andy Valentine

          What I want to know, is why is there only one monopolies commission?

        • Moose

          Even monopolies have a price limited by demand. As you raise the price of an item, the market responds by introducing substitutes. If diamonds shot to 2 million/g tomorrow, people would start using other gem stones in their place. A monopoly isn't as much of a blank check as people believe.

          That said, fuck De Beers like the murderous exploitative assholes that they are.

    • 0331

      They only get what you are willing to pay.

      They're so precious and rare that you can only buy them at every WalMart everywhere.

    • Si1entStatic

        So how much did you spend? $150? πŸ˜€

    • rsjem1979

      Women like shiny things. Men like women so they'll pay for shiny things despite the fact that their value is falsely-inflated.

      Just be thankful they haven't created diamond-crusted Mallomars.

    • hydrogenbond

      You can always just get them lab-grown-they're way cheaper and perfect quality

  • Bob

    I don't think cocain or meth are that expensive you are getting ripped off

    • Joe Lawrence

      Those are the prices the police quote to newspapers, to make their busts seem more important.

    • Craigery

      Those are the prices for pure, uncut stuff.

      • Johnny

        No it's not. They cut it and keep the prices the same to make more money. Coke 50 a gram and weed 20 a gram. Heroin is real cheap like 10 a gram

        • dbone

          Lol no h is NOT ten a g. Don't say things you don't know. Of the drugs the h price is actually the most accurate.

          • mcfadinj

            Actually, where I live, H IS ten a gram, and the cheapest of them all. Unless you've been everywhere in the world and bought drugs, keep your mouth shut about the prices.

    • truth

      If meth was really that expensive, the South would be full of millionaires.

      • Scuba Steve

        Why do we all know so much about this O_O

          walks away whistling…..

    • BType13X2

      If its Walter White Brand Meth its that expensive.

    • nuccabay

      LSD isnt nearly that expensive either

      • Green Mountain Bot

        Yeah, it is. You're forgetting that it is so powerful that dosages are measured in micrograms – millionths of grams.

        The crazy thing is the median lethal dose is estimated at between 200-1000 micrograms per kg of body weight. So a 150 lb man would have to take something like 100 doses to reach the bottom of that range.

    • stevie waugh

      the purest coke and heroin sold on the streets is cut 4 or 5 times before it gets there, the prices here are for pure, uncut weights

  • Will Turner

    Interested how they calculated the price of antimatter, did they add up the costs to build ALPHA / ATHENA on the AD at CERN? or did Dirac / Anderson charge for their theories?

      • mcfadinj

        And you suck dick. Excellent diatribe, brethren.

  • Biggus Diccus


    You need to find a new dealer

    • Richard

      I would say this is the price pure, not cut as it is sold on the streets

      • Still_MisGuided

        if thats what you are still pay for pure, still find yourself a new dealer

    • Flox

      Or rather find your old one and beat the crap out of him for ripping you off. Where I'm from this nets you triple the amount.

    • madunt

      It's $300 here in Australia and that's cut !

      • sploodge

        and if you don't pay up quick, the dealers set their guard Kangaroos on us

    • vindi

      Fuck $50 a gram here and you can bounce it off the floor!

    • Scotty C

      I am pretty sure if this was pure it would have a yellowish tinge to it

  • dirty drew

    Cocaine is no more than $200 for 3.5 grams. its usually 160-180 for an eight ball (3.5 grams)

    • bob

      Dear police, go ahead and trace back this "Dirty" drew and keep an eye on the junk head!

    – um… none of those make sense. cocaine, grams are from 40-60$. diamonds? lol, are you serious? you can buy a carat for 300$.

        • neXx

          – roffles.

    • Derp

      Pure cocaine i think would be more expensive, and one gram equals 5 ct.

      • chronicLSD

        wait pure coke is more expensice? no way!

        • mcfadinj

          It's actually not. The more pure it is, the further south it is. The further south you go, the cheaper it is.

      LSD is awesome and perfectly acceptable.

        Last gram of LSD crystal I bought was $700.00 and it makes 100 – 100 drop vials at 200 mcgs per drop. Most LSD has been cut after that or is only at around 100 mcgs per drop. So if it makes 10000 hits at $5.00 a piece that equals out to $50,000 per gram at street price value at an upper end dosage.

        • Totally not the cops

          I see, and where do you normally conduct your operations?

        • edslerson

          i am also interested

    • Son of Dad

      You bastard… I just laughed coffee out of my nose.

  • saltygary

    #9 if you buy a gram of that stuff, you'll be tripping balls for forty years.

    • Si1entStatic

      I know right, I'm almost 30 and I'm still tripping after the hit my mom took before I was conceived….

    • biggles

      I wish i could buy a gram of the stuff 8(

    #6 This is actually available for purchase??

    • MacNCheesePro

      I'd rather buy a T-rex skull. You can get one for around 100k.

    • NonBrit

      Shouldn't be much harder to buy than the meth or the cocaine.

      • Brutal Deluxe

        The individual in the picture will probably give you an entire hornfull for free if you stand in front of him.

        • NonBrit

          A discount to die for.

            Major poaching problem in South Africa at the moment,

            Just so some tiny dicked asian guy can get a hard on. Pathetic.

            • P90

              Epecially pathetic since we all know Rhino horn is just matted hair.

              • mcfadinj

                If this is true, that's incredibly interesting. Time to do some research on the badassness that is Rhino horn!

    • Anomanom

      Yup, it a traditional medicine very popular in asia.

    • Si1entStatic

      Sure but the dealer is either going to kill you or arrest you so……

    • B_T_I

      There are a few legal avenues for this. they are acctually starting to farm it. One guy has herds of them and cuts the horn and sells it. It grows back and he does it again.


    Cool, what the fuck is most of that shit!!!!

    • BostonChiver.

      Elements my dear Watson.

    • _Moose_

      I don't know, but now I've got to get my wife some fuckin' painite bling before her friends start rockin' that shit. #11

  • Hooka

    Someone please tell me why the fuck is LSD 3000 bucks a gram????

    • smokey

      One gram of LSD is an incredible number of hits, it's normally measured by the microgram

    • Meowmix

      It usually comes soaked onto small sheets of paper; the paper isn't counted as part of the weight when determining worth per gram, a gram's worth of liquid LSD can soak a good amount of paper….
      or so I've heard..

    • Facemelt

      I'd buy that

    • chronicLSD

      cause if you took a gram of acid you would never come down

      • Anna

        you would definitely go into cardiac arrest. if your brain did boil and explode first.

        • AnHamenal

          No one has ever died from overdosing on LSD. I have eatens 10grams at one time.

          • chronicLSD

            bullshit…10 tabs dont equal 10 grams buddy

  • Jery

    Californium…. Or shall I say NorCalifornium?
