In 1957, the thirty-fourth session of the Idaho legislature authorized the updating and improvement of the Great Seal in order to more clearly define Idaho's main industries, mining, agriculture and forestry as well as highlight the state's natural beauty. Paul B. Evans and the Caxton Printers, Ltd. were commissioned to revise the seal. This painting by Paul B. Evans officially replaced the original design by Emma Edwards Green and is designated as the "Official Copy." The official Great Seal of the State of Idaho can be seen in the office of the Secretary of State.
|The Appaloosa is an intelligent, fast and hard working breed. An easy going disposition and exceptional abilities give this horse a great deal of versatility that no doubt contributes to its rapidly rising popularity. Once the warhorses of the Nez Perce, today the Appaloosa serves as a racehorse, in parades, ranch work and youth programs. The coloring of the Appaloosa's coat is distinct in every individual horse and ranges from white blanketed hips to a full leopard. Adopted by the 1975 legislature.|

|The star garnet from Emerald Creek, Idaho, is the best garnet outside of India to exhibit the star phenomenon. It comes from rays of rutile in the garnet, which are arranged along the crystal planes of the stone. There is not much garnet of this quality left at the diggings, which are soon to be closed by the Forest Service. Star garnets that have been cut in a cabochon is to display the star. Most of the garnets are four ray stars, although a few show six rays.|
