Luxurious vomit found on British beach

The Telegraph on the lucky find

A mysterious stone was found by a man walking his dog on a beach in Morecambe, England. Looking it up on the Internet, he came to the realisation that it might be a lump of Ambergris; a rare ingredient used in perfumes. Ambergris hardens over time while floating around in the sea, after having been hurled up by sperm whales with a soar throat. €50000 has been offered by a French dealer, if it turns out to be the real thing.


  1. I like the quality of the drawings on this one

  2. This is great!
    I live near where this was found I might try to get me some...

    1. I wish there were whales hurling expensive stuff where I live.
