Joseph Mengele—the escaped Nazi war criminal and SS physician known as the "Angel of Death"—spent years doing bizarre medical experiments on twins at Auschwitz, working to determine if twins held the key to building a blonde-haired, blue-eyed master race for Adolf Hitler. Now a historian says he has evidence that Mengele's attempts may not have ended at Auschwitz and that his obsession to engineer an Aryan master race continued in South America. Deep in the Brazilian outback, a tiny town exists with reportedly some 44 pairs of twins, maybe blonde and blue-eyed. Could they be the product of Mengele's machinations?

Brazilian Geode Necklace
Brazilian Geode Necklace
(Based on 1 review)
Category: Clothing/Jewelry/Necklaces

Sometimes what looks like a dull stone reveals an interior of delicate crystals. These formations are called geodes, and with the right mix of pressure, water, and chemicals, they can form inside volcanic or sedimentary rocks. Here, artisans in California cut thin slices from Brazilian geodes to expose the white and black quartz, lined with sparkling crystals. The outer “shell” is gold-plated to highlight the mineral’s natural beauty. Please allow for variations in these natural stones. 14-karat-gold-filled chain.

The 400 Million Dollar Emerald DVD-R
(Got it? Rate it.)
Category: DVDs/Adventure and Exploration

An 840 pound emerald—the world's 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. In between, the emerald spends weeks submerged underwater in a New Orleans vault after Hurricane Katrina. By the time the stone finds its way into the California judicial system in 2008, no fewer than eight claimants are tussling for control of a specimen appraised at around $400 million.
