cost of saffron in gold?

bigjeff | Aug 5, 2003 04:07 PM

I read somewhere, and I stand by the fact that I read it somewhere but I can't find it again, that saffron is supposedly by weight, worth more than gold? that is, per ounce, saffron costs more than gold . . . is that possible? all I read are about 50,000 crocus heads for a gram or an ounce, and random measurements, but does anyone know the answer to this question? my girlfriend always makes fun of me for believing this, esp. when we pass by saffron in a store . . someone help settle this please!
