Fura and Tena lived happily for centuries in the paradise between the Muzo mountains. One day Fura met a young man with whom she had an affair, the god Are punishes her by making her grow old, Tena discovers the sin she had committed and decides to take her own life; Fura took her husband in her arms and realizing the mistake she had made, she shed tears of pain that turned into emeralds being buried by the water in the bowels of the Muzo mountains.
