This bezoar was found in the stomach of a chamois by Ron Lambert circa 1965-66 while hunting in the Clyde River area in Canterbury. Bezoars are defined by the Oxford Dictionary as "small stony concretions which form in the stomachs of certain animals, especially ruminants, and which were once used as an antidote for various ailments."
