A concrete substance, of the consistence of wax, cineritious colour, studded with yellow and blackish spots, and exhaling a very pleasant odour. It seems highly probable that ambergris is formed in the intestines of the whale, and voided with its excrement. Like all aromatic substances, ambergris is slightly anti-spasmodic and excitant; but it is oftener employed as a perfume than as a medicine.
