Couple Gary and Angela Williams hits the jackpot after picking up a large stinky rock on a beach. But why jackpot if this thing stinks like a dead fish? The truth is, this rare smelly rock is far more valuable than you could imagine. Here’s why…The couple from Overton, Lancashire, were strolling along Middleton Sands beach when they smelled a rotting fish. They followed the stinky smell and found a bizarre-looking rock.Knowing that the bizarre sticky rock is highly valuable, as they had already read about it in a newspaper, the couple immediately wrapped the ambergris in a scarf and took it home.
Gary and his wife are a bit shocked with the discovery and said, “It was down a section of the beach where no-one really walks. It smells too bad though. It’s a very distinctive smell, like a cross between a squid and farmyard manure. It feels like a rock hard rubber ball. Its texture is like wax, like a candle. When you touch it you get wax sticking to your fingers.”In 2013, a 2.7kg whale vomit found in Morecambe was valued at up to £120,000. Meanwhile, a 1.1 kg one found on a beach in Anglesey, Wales, was bought for £11,000 at an auction in Macclesfield, Cheshire last September  Source: Nodutu Lokaya
