This piece of news is not easy to digest. A whale-vomit has made a UK couple rich.
UK couple Gary and Angela Williams are over the moon after discovering that the smelly rock they picked up on the beach turned out to be ‘whale-vomit’ which is potentially worth a whopping 50,000 pounds ( ₹47.3 lakhs).
The Williams who hail from Lancashire were walking on the Middlestone Sands beach when a stench caught their attention. On following the rotting smell, the couple came stumbled across a weird looking rock.
As luck would have it, this bizarre-looking rock turned out to be a piece of ambergris or ‘whale-vomit’. Ambergris are highly valuable and are used to make perfumes. Having read about ambergris earlier, the couple wrapped the lump and took it home.
Interestingly in 2013, a previous piece of ‘whale-vomit’ was sold for a stupendous 1,20,000 pounds. The couple is currently in talks with potential buyers.
Isn’t this couple ‘Whaley Whaley Lucky’? 😛
