Oklahoma Teen Finds 3.85-Carat Gem At Arkansas Park
A 14-year-old girl from Oklahoma City has unearthed a 3.85-carat diamond at Arkansas' Crater of Diamonds State Park.
Tana Clymer discovered the canary gem Saturday at the park, which is the only diamond-producing site in the United States open to the public.
Tana says she'd been digging in the dirt for about two hours when she discovered the gem on the surface of the search field.
The yellow diamond is teardrop-shaped and about the size of a jellybean. Tana named the diamond "God's Jewel."
According to the park, Tana plans to either keep the diamond for a ring - or, if it's worth a lot, sell it and use the money for college.
Her gem is the 396th diamond found so far this year at the park in southern Arkansas.
