  When I reached the hill, owing to the distinctiveness of the vision which I had had
concerning it, I knew the place the instant
that I arrived there. I dug around the large stone, then lifted it up with a lever. There I found the Gold Plates and the Urim and Thummim with the BreastPlate.*
 
     
  No one has seen these
Plates since Moroni buried
them 1400 years ago !
 
     
  What ‘s a Urim and
Thummim ?
 
     
  Two transparent stones, known
as “ seer ” stones, set into the
two rims of a bow of silver and
attached to the breast plate.1
Aaron had a similar one, and it ‛s
mentioned in the Old Testament.
