Summary An 840 pound emerald -- the worlds largest -- is unearthed in Brazil in 2001. The resulting tale of deceit, obsession, and folly is almost too bizarre to be believed. A businessman claims to have bought it in Brazil for a mere $60,000, only to see his proof of purchase vanish in a suspicious house fire. Another man obtains title to the emerald, only to lose it in a diamond deal that falls through, he says, because he was kidnapped by the Brazilian mafia.
