World's Largest Apache Tear Gemstone
Now on display at the World's Smallest Museum!

World's Smallest Museum is proud to announce that the world's largest Apache Tear gemstone is now on display everyday! The translucent merikanite is approximately 1600 carats large. It comes from the Apache Tear mine in Superior, Arizona. Obsidian nodules from other places are usually opaque. Only translucent merikanites from Superior can truly be called Apache Tears.
