While walking his dog along the rough coastlines of Morcambe, England, Ken Wilman came across pure gold.
He told Channel 4 News in the UK that he Googled large stones in the Morcambe area and realized Madge had struck gold. The deposit was most likely made by a sperm whale, and the vomit is a seriously valuable commodity used in perfume.


Because of rarity, perfume makers have created a synthetic version of the substance, but there is still a huge market for the real thing. The lifeboat service in Morcambe has warned potential treasure hunters against trying to replicate Wilman’s success.
The tide comes in so very quickly that it catches people unaware, even people that know it. He was just walking his dog on the beach when he saw a strange object. The lump for some reason drew him in, and he decided to take it home. Turns out it was a good decision–the weird lump is actually ambergris, or whale vomit, and is used in the perfume industry. Auctioneer Chris Surfleet estimates the foul-smelling lump, which is eight inches long and weighs about 2.2 pounds, will sell for between $7,500 and $10,750. In the past, a six pound lump of ambergris sold for $153,000 to a buyer from the perfume industry.
The finder, who has remained unnamed, won’t say which beach in Anglesey he found the lump on.


The pure gold was in the form of whale vomit, but it’s believed to be worth over $180,000. Regularly dispelled by sperm whales miles away from shore, it is a chemical that helps the whale digest.
We’re really worried about people just wandering off on the beach searching for ambergris.
Over time it becomes a much sweeter smell as it oxidises, but initially it doesn’t smell very nice. After being excreted by the whale, the substance is soft and mud-like; through floating in the sea and a mixture of salt and sun, it gradually becomes rock-like.
We want people to be very aware of the tide and if they’re in any sort of doubt about the conditions where they are walking, get in touch with the coastguard.
