If you have a spare $800,000 and a floor made of steel, then this large crystal bathtub will make an ideal addition to your bathroom interior. You’ll certainly be bathing in style and sophistication for this bath is carved from a single block of white rock crystal which was found in the Amazonian region of Brazil.

The pure crystal bathtub is in fact one of a pair. The other was sold to a Russian magnate back in 2008 for £567,000 (around $859,000). Both bathtubs were individually sculpted by expert craftsmen in Italy. Parts of the surface are purposefully left rough in order to show the natural beauty of the crystal. As one would expect, each of the two tubs is unique in appearance.

The impressive 7ft long crystal bathtub is currently on show in the famous Harrods store in Knightsbridge, London until the end of July 2010.
