Almost everyone would like to have lots of money. It just makes life easier. Plus there’s some stuff I’d like to buy that just isn’t in the budget (or “spending plan”, if you prefer that terminology). And so people look for “get rich quick” schemes, often making other people rich when falling for gimmick plans.
Well, I’ve found a readily-available substance that is more valuable than gold and diamonds. Too good to be true, you might be thinking. Well, it kinda is. There’s plenty of it, but the difficulty in acquiring it is what makes it valuable. Finding it is easy (in a way), because you can find it all around the world. But catching some of it is quite the achievement.
So what am I talking about? Do I even know? 😮 Yes, of course I know what I’m talking about. It’s lunar meteorites. Basically, that’s a fancy term for chunks of the moon. Yep, a piece of the moon is more valuable than gold or diamonds. Check out these stats (referencing here) :
Samples (end cuts, slabs, chips, crumbs, dust) of lunar meteorites sell on the Internet (e.g., eBay) for between about $800 and $40,000 per gram, depending upon rarity (perceived or real) and demand. By comparison, the price of 24-carat gold is about $20 per gram and gem-quality diamonds start at $1000-2000/gram.
Obviously, the difficulty is in getting some. It’s still quite expensive to go to the moon, and finding them in your yard is not a common thing. Hence the high value of them. But I’ve directed our official Buffet o’ Blog R&D department to find an affordable way to acquire some. Even if it costs quite a bit initially, the rocks would soon pay for it. If a gram can go for as much as $40,000, imagine how much a whole rock would be worth!
I know, some people are thinking this is impossible. You’re just saying that because no one is doing it. You may also be thinking it’s silly. Well, it may be, but it’s an ingenious get-rich-quick scheme, you have to admit. Have you ever heard this before? I didn’t think so.
(BTW, if you want to be part of this project, send us some money and we’ll give you a cut of the riches.) 🙂
