On October 29th, 1865, a young blue whale beaches in the Askim bay outside Göteborg. Olof Larsson, a local fisherman, finds it and struggles for two days alongside his brother-in-law to kill ‘this horrible beast’. They sell it to August Malm, curator at the Göteborg Museum of Natural History. Malm sees the opportunity to make a scientific dream come true. He will preserve everything. From James Robertson Dickson, Malm receives 1500 riksdaler to pay the fishermen, and the enormous task begins. There is no time to lose, as the carcass has already begun to decompose. Besides, it is vital to save the colossus from spectators who wish to obtain souvenirs.

The Bahia Emerald is one of the largest emeralds and contains the largest single shard ever found. The stone, weighing approximately 752 lb (341 kg) (approximately 1,700,000 carats) originated from Bahia, Brazil and is emerald crystals embedded in host rock. It narrowly escaped flooding during Hurricane Katrina in 2005 during a period of storage in a warehouse in New Orleans. There was an ownership dispute after it was reported stolen in September 2008 from a secured vault in South El Monte in Los Angeles County, California. The emerald was located and the case and ownership has been settled. The stone has been valued at some $400 million, but the true value is unclear.
