Boy Strikes It Rich With Whale Vomit: A

British boy who found a chunk of whale vomit stands to make as much as $60,000 from it, CBSNews.com

reports. The whale vomit is actually a substance called ambergris, which is very valuable to the perfume

industry and which used to be gathered from the bellies of sperm whales that had been killed. Ambergris

has been mostly replaced by synthetics in the perfume industry, making actual ambergris worth even more.

Who knew whale vomit could be so valuable?
