The bathtub that costs 1 million USD

PUBLISHED ON May 15, 2019

It turns out that money really can buy you anything, even a huge crystal bathtub.

The luxury Italian design company Baldi Home Jewels created these incredible opulent tubs that cost up to $1 million each. And they are headed for one of the most exclusive new property developments in the Middle East.

All of the precious stones used for the crystal bathtubs were sourced right from the Amazon rain forest in Brazil, from a 10 ton chunk of rock crystal. The raw material was then split and taken to Florence, Italy to be carved by hand over hundreds of back-breaking hours to create the smooth interior surface. Hardly the most ethical piece of home ware.

The super exclusive tubs come in three variations: green quartz; rock crystal; and rose quartz. There is something to suit even the fussiest of millionaires. Baldi has even created a one-off bath for the billionaire socialite Tamara Ecclestone, decorated with diamonds and gold taps.

With enough room for three people, the large shallow crystal bathtub designs measure six feet in length and stand at just two feet tall.

Crystal is known for being one of the most powerful healing stones. It is said to have energy-enhancing properties that can help with emotional trauma. It turns out it’s not just a glamorous accessory after all.
