Imagine taking a leisurely walk along the beach, something you do often. But this time, you stumble upon something intriguing and pungent that could change your life. That’s exactly what happened to Gary and Angela, a couple in Lancashire, UK. They discovered a valuable piece of ambergris, also known as whale vomit, during their stroll on Middleton Sands beach near Morecambe Bay.
After weighing their find, they were astonished to learn that it weighed 1.57kg, which is equivalent to 3.46 pounds. To put it into perspective, it’s about the size of a rugby ball. Their excitement grew as they remembered a similar discovery in 2013 that was valued at £120,000. It could truly be a life-changing find!
