A woman from Texas was digging for diamonds at Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas when she found a big one. Miranda Hollingsheadsays she was actually watching a YouTube video on how to find diamonds when she spotted the gem among the rocks.
Hollingshead says she had been searching for about an hour when she saw the stone. According to apress releasefrom the park, she took it to the Diamond Discovery Center, where staff determined it’s a 3.72-carat yellow diamond - the largest found in the park since 2013.
Park Interpreter Waymon Coxreports it’s about the size of a pencil eraser and it could beworthtens of thousands of dollars. Hollingshead says if she doesn't sell the gem or keep it as a souvenir, she'll have it mounted as a ring.
I guess they don't call it "Crater of Diamonds" for nothin! What's amazing is that she even knew what she was looking at, because a raw, uncut diamond looks nothing like what you see at jewelry stores.
