On 2007, researchers of the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) and the University of Arizona discovered the End of the World archaeological site, where Clovis groups hunted and used the gigantic animals of the Pleistocene; among other remains, they found a point of projectile of over 13 thousand years, crafted with transparent quartz crystal, whose carving turned it into a prism that reflects and decomposes the light into the colors of the rainbow.

The elaborated tool, which was used to hunt gomphotheres, together with other six Clovis spear heads, carved in rhyolite, silex, and chalcedony, as well as remains of mega fauna of 13,500 years of antiquity, coming from the End of the World, are displayed for the first time to the audience in the exhibition: They Lived in Sonora. The Clovis, Early Hunters of Giants.

Besides the spear heads, the exhibition presents four scrappers, a Clovis cutter, and fossil bones of gomphotheres; accompanying the pieces, there are maps showing the origin of the Clovis points in Mexico and photos giving account of how the End of the World was excavated.
