    The world’s rarest gem is believed to be painite. The painite is orangish or reddish brown and was first discovered in Burma in the ’50s. Within the last couple of years, the source of the two original painite crystals was discovered and now a few hundred faceted stones exist.

    RAREST COMIC BOOK: (this was in the simpsons lol)

    One of the rarest comic books still in existence in near-perfect condition is an issue of “Amazing Spider-Man #1,” rare not only because of its singularity but also because of its quality. The comic book sold for only 12 cents per copy when it was published in March 1963, and is now worth over $40K



    There are countless rare books in the world, but by most experts’ standards the rarest of them all is the Gutenberg Bible. It was the first book ever printed back in 1456, and although several hundred copies were originally printed finding a complete first edition would net you $25-$35 million. In today’s market single pages alone go for $25K each, and several years ago just 1 volume (it’s a 2 volume set) sold for $5.5M.


    What is the rarest trip? There’s no real consensus on this, but Luxist.com blogger Deidre Woodward says that the trek to summit Mount Everest still remains among the rarest trips in the world. But even this has become something that is accessible to more people. In two months and for around $60,000 you can join a group and make the attempt of a lifetime.


    At the intersection of location, exclusivity and history you find some of the rarest pieces of real estate. With that criterion, Luxist.com blogger’s pick for the rarest piece of real estate currently on the market is Bran’s castle, the castle in Transylvania that inspired Bram Stoker’s Dracula, which is expected to fetch upwards of $135 million.


    One of the rarest bottles of wine ever sold was purchased by Christopher Forbes for a mere £105,000 ($160,000). It was an unmarked green glass bottle with the inscription of “1787 Lafitte Th. J.” (now known as Lafite and thought to be owned by Thomas Jefferson), found behind a wall in Paris.


    The world’s only Phantom Corsair is on Florida’s Amelia Island. In 1938 the Phantom Corsair was a vision of the future – a sleek, black, aerodynamic insect. Only one was ever built, making it the rarest car in the world, and it makes its sole appearance this year at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. The brainchild of Rust Heinz, 25-year-old heir to the ketchup fortune, the Corsair was to sell for $12,500 ($184,000 today) with modernism that was more than skin-deep – it boasted features that wouldn’t take hold for a generation, such as padded interiors and gauges for fuel economy and battery charge, a barometer and compass, front-wheel drive, and electric gear shift. Tragically, Heinz died in a car accident before the Corsair saw an assembly line. His one car will drive onto the golf course at Florida’s Amelia Island Ritz-Carlton


    Astatine is a highly radioactive material. It has a silvery color to it. It was discovered in 1940 and you can most likely find it in natural minerals. This element is so rare that the entire amount of its natural occurrence on the earth’s crust would equal to 1 teaspoon.
