The world's most expensive things are named

An unusual medicine, scorpion venom, luxury tea… and that’s not all the list of the world’s most expensive purchases.

At the top of the list is the mysterious medicine Luxturna, which is among the most expensive in the world, thanks to the fact that it can restore sight even to people who have been blind from birth.

Then there is the venom of certain scorpions, which is used to treat brain cancer. To extract just 4 litres of this venom, more than 2 million doses have to be collected.

The third place belongs to Big Red Robe tea, which takes farmers a year to grow the raw material and only the top 4-leaf sprout is harvested.

Of the properties, the most expensive is the Antilia Tower in Mumbai, which houses hotels, spas, swimming pools, helipads and more.

The Graff Diamonds Hallucination chronometers are not only the most expensive accessory, but also a work of jewellery art.

And the most expensive perfume is IMPERIAL MAJESTY PERFUME: the bottle is cut out of rock crystal and inlaid with gold and diamonds.
But it’s not the gold toilet bowl that’s considered the height of sophistication, it’s the toilet paper made of real gold.
