10 Lucky Finds That Made People Rich

10. Whale Puke Worth $63,000

Ambergris is a fancy word for whale vomit. It is formed on the surface of the ocean over a number of years. Basically, when a sperm whale vomits, it floats on the surface of the ocean because it is less dense than the water. Then UV rays from the sun and the salt water harden it over time. Eventually it will wash up on the shore. It is extremely rare and very valuable. Ambergris is used in perfumes to make their scent last all day long. It sells for about $20 a gram and has earned the nickname “Floating Gold”. One day, Leon Wright was walking along the Australian shoreline with his wife and found a solid piece weighing 14.75 kilograms. That single chuck of hardened whale puke was worth $63,000.
