Man Finds Whale Vomit That Could Be Worth £100,000

If you happen to see a large yellow-ish rock on the beach, don’t just walk on by. Grab it and cash in. It could just be a very rare chunk of sperm whale vomit, a substance used to make perfume.

Considering sperm whales have long since discarded what is called ambergris, we doubt even vegans would object to the use of the vomit. (Except maybe for the grossness factor.)

The man who found it, Ken Wilman, should thank his dog Madge for stopping to smell what just looked like a yellow rock. Wilman initially left the beach but then returned after suspecting he had found what is sometimes called “floating gold”.

Wilman told the BBC about the find, “When I picked it up and smelled it I put it back down again and I thought ‘urgh’. It has a musky smell but the more you smell it the nicer the smell becomes.”

He’s having the substance tested to verify that it is indeed ambergris. If it is, estimates for its worth range between $60,000 to over $150,000. It just depends on how much is there.
