Must be nice to find buried treasure in your backyard, especially when it’s worth $80 million. So was the case years ago when a 12-year-old boy named Roy Spencer found a large black crystal in a field just outside his house in Queensland, Australia.
As any young boy excited about finding something shiny in a meadow, he rushed home to show his father. At the time, his father just shrugged it off as being a random black rock and allowed Roy to keep it as it had become quite sentimental to him. Roy’s father put his son’s treasure to good use by using it as a door stop for the entrance of their family home, where it stayed for the next 10 years.
