Tai Narong Vicharaj, 56, was returning from a hunting trip when he found a valuable treasure. And the fisherman saw a white stone floating in the sea, weighing about 30 kilograms, consisting of “whale vomit”. The value of the material is estimated at up to 1 million pounds, equivalent to 7 million Brazilian reals.
Gray amber is a fatty substance found in the gut of a whale and is considered a luxury item by the pharmaceutical industry that uses it to extend the life of perfumes like French Chanel No. 5, for example.
The fisherman remembers seeing the vomit of a whale being dragged by the current towards Neom Beach in Surat Thani, southern Thailand. When he came home with the thing, the man took a sample and took it to a university in the area. Experts have proven the authenticity of the material.
“I’m so excited because I don’t know what to do. I’m planning to sell because I’ve already received a certificate proving it’s real. If I can get a good price, I’ll stop working as a fisherman and throw a party for my friends,” Narong said without containing emotions in an interview with the Daily Mail.
“Devoted food specialist. General alcohol fanatic. Amateur explorer. Infuriatingly humble social media scholar. Analyst.”
