    gazillions is a large amount of money: not millions or billions or trillions but a mythical amount with an uncountable number of zeros: gazillions.

    Georgian means that it's old. Worth gazillions means it's worth a lot of money. It doesn't mean it is expensive. But it would be expensive if somebody wanted to buy it.

    I'd also add that "gazillions", while probably in dictionaries, is not a 'serious' word. You would not say that "The economy of China is worth gazillions" unless you were being very silly.

    I don't think there's any judgment implied that it is "too" expensive, only that it is worth a great deal of money.

    If you say, "Bill Gates is worth gazillions", it simply means that he is very, very rich.
    ah ok :) so I must just say: an exaggeration of its worth.
