Crore worth of ‘whale vomit’ for making perfume on the beach

The house is in front of the sea. A 49-year-old Thai woman went for a walk on the beach. Then he saw a strange thing floating on the shore. From which it smells like fish again. Then he brought it home. Only after showing it to the neighbors and others will you know that it is nothing but a very valuable ‘whale vomit’, whose good name is ambergris.

It is known that the market value of the ambergris that the woman got is 250,000 US dollars. That is about 2 crore rupees in Indian currency.

It is known that the woman named Siriporn Niamarin is a resident of Nakhon Si Thammarat province in Thailand. He saw the thing while walking on the beach in front of his house on February 23. Then he brought it home. Neighbors later told him about Ambergris. After cleaning it, it was seen that the ambergris found by the woman was 12 inches thick and 24 inches long. Its price in the international market is 250,000 US dollars.

The ‘whale vomit’ or ambergris is actually a part of the body of the world’s largest mammal. It is also called ‘floating gold’ and ‘hidden treasure of the sea’. This thing is basically made in the body of the ‘sperm whale’. From there it vomits into the sea. At first it smells like fish, but later it smells very nice. As a result, perfume is made from it. The price of this ambergris is also much higher in the international market.

For now, Siriporn has decided to sell the ambergris. But what to do with this money? In an interview, Siriporn said he would come forward to help the people of his community with that money.
