Arkansas Diamond Mega-Find
Did you hear about the father and daughter that found a huge two carat diamond in an Arkansas diamond mine recently? On October 10, the Washington state amateur diamond sleuths were pleasantly amazed to find a jewelry quality diamond in less than an hour of searching! Lauren Frederick and her dad Dan had searched for gems before. They expect to keep this hobby going!
The admission fee to the park was $8.00 a person and they found a gemstone worth from 5,060 and 48,400 per carat! This diamond is logically named “The Lucky Diamond,” and it was found on the surface of the ground in a park where many people toil away with shovels and sweating on their knees. The two plan to keep the diamond, making for a valued heirloom I am sure. And I don’t know if the daughter is married, but I am sure that would make a lovely wedding ring!
The diamond was found in the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Murfreesboro, Arkansas. Searching for diamonds here is a fascinating experience, and there have been other large finds. In 2015 Susie Clark found an even larger 3.69 teardrop shaped diamond. Because she was praying at the time, she called it the “Hallelujah” diamond.
The diamond is of course the birthstone of April. A large 2 carat diamond, would make a beautiful diamond ring. However, if you can not find a huge Arkansas diamond like Lauren and Dan found found – here are some of my other favorites:
