If you visit the Nero exhibition at the British Museum you will find the Barber Cup, made of fluorspar in 50-100 AD. One of only two examples to have survived antiquity and exceptionally rare in the Roman world. According to Pliny, Nero paid 1 million sesterces for a single cup.
Sold by Charles Ede in 2003.
