Hourglass, more commonly known as sandglass is the most illustrious medium for describing the quick passage of time. The two glass bulbs exchange sand as well as time through the narrow passage between them.
Now, a shop in Thailand decided to make the best use of it by replacing the sand in an hourglass with diamonds, 10.000 carats of them. The price for the world’s most expensive hourglass is $6,400,000. If you drop and break that one, plenty of people will help you to clean up. [via Luxuo]
