8-Year-Old Finds Whale Vomit Worth $63,000
Looks like this 8-year-old boy is going to have college paid for. Charlie Naysmith was walking along the beach in Great Britain and stumbled across a yellowed rock in the sand. After looking at it more with the help of his parents, they discovered it was a piece of ambergris, which is either whale vomit or feces. If you don’t know what ambergris is…it’s actually a valuable ingredient in perfume because it prolongs the scent of that perfume all the ladies love to wear. A pound of ambergris can sell for as much as $10,000. But little Charlie’s piece is estimated to be worth at least $63,000. When asked what they plan to do with the funds, Charlie’s father said they are planning on building an animal shelter, because Charlie loves nature.
