We Can Now Buy Thanos' Actual Infinity Gauntlet From Marvel. How Much Will It Cost Us?
At the 2022 San Diego Comic Con, a real-life Infinity Gauntlet with actual gemstones was unveiled to the public. And Marvel is calling on fans to purchase it—if we dare.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe first showed us the gauntlet during a mid-credits scene from Avengers: Age of Ultron. Of course, we remember big bad purple Thanos using it in Avengers: Endgame to wipe out half of the universe after he completed all six Infinity Stones. These were the green Time Stone, the blue Space Stone, the red Reality Stone, the purple Power Stone, the orange Soul Stone, and the yellow Mind Stone.
Aptly called the "Infinity Collection of Gemstones," the gauntlet was done in collaboration with East Continental Gems (ECG). It has about 150 carats and is made of some very precious gems.
Marvel and ECG relied on a Colombian emerald gem nearly 23 carats for the Time Stone, a Madagascan sapphire more than 30 carats for the Space Stone, a Mozambican oval-shaped ruby over 15 carats for the Reality Stone, an oval-shaped amethyst over 35 carats for the Power Stone, a Spessartite more than 35 carats for the Soul Stone, and a yellow diamond roughly 35 carats for the Mind Stone.
“There has never been anything as exciting and interesting in the Marvel Universe than the prized Infinity Stones," East Continental Gems president Adam Mirzoeff claimed.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Mirzoeff said that he got the idea for the Infinity Collection after seeing Endgame. It was inevitable.
So are we worthy enough to wield it? (Yes, this is more of a Mjölnir reference) Well, for a cool $25 million or about P1.4 billion, we just might be.
