You probably didn’t expect to see a liquid on this list since almost all of the most expensive things found on earth are gems and diamonds but coral snake venom is not here to play around.

Due to antiviral and antibacterial properties found within its venom, the liquid can be sold for a whopping $4000 dollars for simply a gram.

The reason it costs so much is that it is extracted from only the specific coral snakes, which already narrows it down to a rarity. And then on top of that, a single snake can only give out so much at a single time plus the process is manual and has to be completed very carefully.
