Coyotito is the child of Kino and Juana. Neat little Holy-Family like triad, it seems. somehow the child is stung by a Scorpion and becomes very ill. I am not sure if he dies or not, anyhow this is the last straw, gimme that cursed Gem- after consulting with the Priest and the Doctor, or maybe after ignoring them, Kino gets extremely angry and well, returns the pearl to its environment- he tosses the valuable item into the Ocean, with his wife"s consent, by the way.
