Iceberg Treasure

LeConte Bay, Alaska I found this bowling ball sized boulder located in a melting iceberg that had calved from LeConte Glacier in Alaska. It was smoothed by scraping along the mountain walls in its journey from the ice fields to the sea and had been buried deep in the glacial ice for thousands of years, only to be revealed as the compacted glacial blue ice finally melted around it.
