Quick question, what's the most expensive per-unit mineral or substance in Eve these days?

Without trawling through the market, which you could do yourself, I cannot say. At a guess Morphite, or one of the drone alloys.

excluding stuff like blueprints implants etc, either one of the moon goo products (ferrogel) or the new tech 3 reaction product stuff.

In terms of stuff that you can mine solo:

minerals: Megacyte, Zydrine, or Morphite
Ore: (that give above) Crokite, Arkonor, Bistot, Mercoxit (only ore that gives morphite)

There are others like Spodumain that give those but it's much lower ratios. The ABC+M ores are only really available in good 0.0 systems.

In terms of overall in the game, R64 moon mining (dyspro, promethium, etc) which is essentially impossible to do unless you're in a major alliance or extraordinarily lucky.

Unless you have unfettered access to secure 0.0 space, I can't help but feel the correct answer is veldspar.

Veldspar is not the most expensive per-unit, as the OP asked. However, for miners in high-sec, mining is done in terms of cubic meters and veldspar takes less space than other ores and it does have a higher ISK/m3 value than most high-sec ores.

Dysprosium is currently about 120k ISK per unit.

Are you planning another dupe exploit?
