Most expensive plectra?

These picks made from meteorites are pretty pricey. Does anyone know of a more expensive variety?

Wow. I'd only pay that much for a guitar pick if it was made from one of Jimi Hendix's teeth. I do like the soundclip on that site, though.

I'll have half a dozen "Astrotones" please.
That will be $660 USD thanks.

Hey Stumblin, they probably sound great. I use a similar pick, about 3mm thick, but it costs $1.

It does give me some ideas. :idea: What else could you make picks from?

Protactinium? (Although you might want to wear gloves).

That's the real thing, with the Widmanstatten lines etched.

As for Jimi Hendrix's relics, I'd think a toenail would be better than a tooth.
