Crystal Shrimp (水晶蝦)

It is incredible that these little shrimps at a shop in Mongkok are almost HK$2,000 each.  In fact, I vaguely remember that a year ago, I saw some that looked identical, at the same shop, at HK$7,000 each.  

These are less than 1.5 cm long.  They probably weigh less than 0.1 gram.  That means they are worth HK$20,000,000 per kilogram.  In comparison, gold is only roughly HK$300,000 per kilogram.  These little animals are worth as much as diamonds.  Incredible.
