Have you ever heard the word Amber? If you've heard of it, you know that expensive perfumes have a famous ingredient.
Englishman Ken Wilman, a famous entrepreneur, makes money by selling whale vomit.
Ken Wilman: The extraordinary whale vomit entrepreneur
In the middle of the day, Ken, who was walking on the beach, found a large whale vomit, or amber, on the seashore, when he traced the dog when he was walking with his dog, Madge, when the dog caught a scent. Ken, a determined entrepreneur, later confirmed it was amber. Well, what is the value of this item? You may not believe it, but it is a treasure trove. Of course, Ken is not the only one who comes across such a unique treasure with a value of 60-150 thousand dollars.
A few months ago, Charles Naysmith encountered an interesting rock while walking with his family off the coast of England. After some research, he learned that the rock was amber. It was understood that the value of the stone was 60 thousand dollars.
What is Ambergris?
Ambergris is a solid, waxy substance produced in whales' digestive systems. It is a flammable and very valuable substance that can be black or gray in color.
Produced in the whale's digestive system, this substance allows sharp and hard objects to slide in the intestines. When first produced, feces-smelling amber is transformed into a powerful chemical with refreshing essences. Therefore, it is indispensable for expensive perfumes.
What is the value of whale vomit?
Amber is excreted in the feces of whales, but sometimes the amount is so large that it cannot pass through the digestive system and is expelled by the whale. These vomit balls can sometimes be seen on the ocean surface and sometimes they hit the shore.
If you come across one of these balls, hold tight, half a kilo of balls is exactly 5000 dollars!
So why is it so valuable?
Because amber is a naturally produced substance and the chemical reactions it creates in perfumes are strong. Amber is also produced synthetically, but it is both pale in appearance and creates the permanent scent of the perfume. The amber contained in perfumes prevents the scent from evaporating by allowing it to penetrate the skin. In this way, perfumes are permanent and sold at high prices.
Where can I find it?
Essentially, finding an amber ball is a matter of luck. It is very rare to find amber on the shores, as whales vomit in the middle of the ocean.
If you want to visit the beaches in search of amber, I would say check the Atlantic Ocean beaches. (Brazil, Maldives and New Zealand with priority)
If you are going to hunt for amber, read stories about amber detection methods and amber discovery. A group of people in New Zealand earned 400 thousand dollars by finding 44 kg of amber. We also recommend you to visit the Ambergris Expertise & Buying Worldwide site.
