The Crater of Diamonds State Park is in Murfreesboro, Arkansas. It’s a place where you can look for diamonds, the only place of its kind in the world. If you’re lucky you might find something like 14 year old Tana Clymer did.

Tana and her family had heard of a 12 year old boy that found a 5.16-caret honey brown diamond at the park in July so they decided to go to the park and check things out for themselves.

The park has 37 and a half acres you can search through and Tana had been doing some digging and sifting for about two hours. She finally decided to do some surface searching and that’s when she found her prize.

After only 10 minutes of searching she spotted a diamond on the surface thinking it was a piece of foil from a candy wrapper. When she touched it, she thought it was a marble but when she picked it up she realized it was a diamond.

Tara found a 3.85-caret canary diamond, the 396th diamond found in the park so far this year. It seems due to heavy spring rains this year more diamonds have been pushed to surface. The value of Tara’s diamond is in the range of $15,000 to $60,000.
