The most expensive lobster we had seen, up until today, was a $3,700 glass and silver creation. It doesn't seem terribly impressive now that this strikingly realistic solid gold lobster has come to our attention. The crustacean is made from 1.1-lbs of pure gold and is intricately worked down to the last tiny detail. It is about 13" long and 7" tall. Currently on display in a jewelry store in Nagoya Japan, the lobster's asking price is around 5 million yen, or $40,000.
