Both fossil and mummified specimens have been found, one of which in particular is in such good condition that it can still be edible: in a quarry in Alaska in 1979, "Blue Babe" was found (so called because of the bluish color due to vivianite). , a specimen dated 36,000 years ago of which a piece of meat was removed and tasted by scholars of the University of Alaska.
