Boy Finds 5-Carat Diamond at Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas

Diamond find
Arkansas State Parks

Big fun for a family visiting our area on a summer vacation.

 

I have trudged through this park with my girlfriends on a girls getaway to Hot Springs. We looked like fish out of water out there digging for treasure. We had no luck. But a 12-year-old North Carolina boy did have some luck at the park. He made quite a find during a family stop  in Arkansas – he found a 5.16 carat honey-brown diamond at the Crater of the Diamond State Park in southwest Arkansas. It’s the 27th largest diamond found by a park visitor since the site became a state park in 1972 – and the eighth largest brown diamond. The boy has reportedly named the large gem “God’s Glory Diamond.”  It’s the 328th diamond found by a visitor this year.
