THE WORLD’S MOST expensive bathtub has been bought by an anonymous buyer in Dubai for Dh6.4 million (€1.29 million).

The Le Grand Queen is carved from a single block of the rare, precious stone caijou – which is made of 180 million-year-old petrified wood.

Herbert Nitzlnader, the chief executive of Caijou, the Austrian company that made the bath described it as “a truly unique piece… made from one of the rarest raw materials in the world,” reports The National.

The stone is traditionally believed to have healing properties in Ancient Chinese, Arab and Egyptian civilizations, The Sun reports.

The bathtub was sold as part of Dubai International Jewellery Week.
