Couple found something that they thought was a common stone – at closer look, they realized its true value

Keep reading to learn what amazing discovery they made…

Gary and Angela Williams, a couple from Overton, Lancashire, were at the beach enjoying a relaxing watch when they came across something totally unexpected. As they walked on Middleton Sands Beach in the UK, they came across what they thought was an ordinary rock. But when they looked closer, it turned out it was something completely different.

They saw something that had washed over on the beach and were intrigued. They decided to take a closer look. The couple initially thought it looked like something pre-historic, like a dinosaur egg. They were intrigued and decided to look into it deeper.


Their curiosity paid off because they decided to look at the object more closely. They had unintentionally stumbled across something quite precious, a substance called Ambergris.

Initially, they thought it looked interesting but had an unpleasant odor. The substance has a lot of value in monetary terms. It is highly coveted in the perfume industry and serves as an important fixative in a lot of high-end luxury fragrances.

“Ambergris is formed within the digestive system of sperm whales when they ingest sharp objects like squid beaks, which are their typical food. The whale’s intestines secrete a sticky substance to encapsulate these foreign objects, preventing harm to the intestinal lining. Over time, these aggregated remnants solidify into lumps of varying sizes, eventually being expelled through feces or regurgitation. Exposure to sunlight and seawater transforms this mixture into a hardened substance with a distinctive aromatic scent,” experts explain.

The piece of Ambergris they came across had a waxy texture and a very pungent odor. Gary described the scent as that of fish and natural fertilizers. However unattractive it looked, the substance had immense value.

The amount they found weighed one-and-a-half kilograms, and they found out that it was valued at a price of $70,000! The possession of Ambergris, however, is illegal in some countries because it is often associated with the illegal practice of whaling.
