A man at Union Carbide in Ontario CA. found lumps in the bottom of one of their storage tanks. They were going to throw them out but he took them home and polished them and that was the start of Lindy star sapphires.

The 5.5 kg of gold would probably be worth a lot more today. It’s currently trading over $2,000.00 per ounce on the stock market on this side of the “pond”!! Bonnie

I live by the sea and keep dreaming of finding ambergris, even though the thought of what it actually is makes me feel ill!

James Williams, lots of those sold in South Charleston, WV, when Carbide had a huge plant there on the Kanawha River. They discovered antifreeze there because what they were dumping in the river wouldn't freeze. Carbide, FMC, Dupont, Monsanto were in the South Charleston area known as the Chemical Center of the World. Most of it gone now.

Some amazing discoveries! I could never be so lucky. I was always digging for buried treasure as a child & because the Kohokia trail ran threw our backyard, I found a lot of old Native American items. Arrow heads tomahawk, tools, etc. I amassed quite a hoard of Native American treasures which I thought was cool but not exactly treasure. It wasn't until an antique dealer came to our house looking to buy antiques that I realized it was indeed treasure. He paid my Mom & Dad several thousand dollars for the collection. After he left I held out my hand & my Mom said what are you doing? I said where's my share. Her & my Dad laughed but I was serious. It was I who spent hours digging for these treasures & in my mind they belonged to me. My parents didn't see it that way. Hahaha

Ambergris usually comes out of the other end.
