It seems that astronomers have estimated that a asteroid named 16 Psyche is worth 10,000 Quadrillion Dollars, read more at https://www.yahoo.com/news/hubble-examines-asteroid-worth-more-194958108.html

 

P.S. I guess this gives us a reason to go to space and mine asteroids. 

NOPE. you will only calculate or dive into deep mathematical formulas like religiously irrational stephen hawking did. 

oh,well, I do not believe any science  was rational when that science was not providing any efficacious side. 🙂

Yes, absolutely..

But if you could somehow harvest the asteroid, in theory that would bring down mineral prices as it would  interupt scarcity of Supply/Demand. assuming Earth human population was around the same. 

16 Psyche could drive down all the prices once supply was near inexhaustable. Not considering mining expenses.
