I’m going to have to do some research into the hunting of precious stones if there are diamonds being found in the Murfreesboro area…must check out all the necessary hunting supplies I’ll need and map out my start for my search.
Fox News.Com has reported that a 6.19-carat white diamond was found at the Crater of Diamonds State Park by a man who moved to the area because he enjoys hunting for precious stones.
The stone was found on Wednesday by David Anderson and it was named the “Limitless Diamond,” in honor of a charity.
Anderson says, “He is planning to sell the diamond and donate the proceeds to the Speed of Light charitable organization.”
Waymon Cox, Park Interpreter, stated the stone is the 15th-largest diamond unearthed at the park which was founded in 1972, and he stated, “It is about the size of a jelly bean.” He also stated that the diamond is almost entirely clear and appears to be an unbroken crystal.
The park which is located in southwest Arkansas is a unique park because the patrons can hunt and keep the diamonds they find. A girl from Oklahoma City was paid $20,000 earlier in the month for a 3.85-carat diamond that she found at an Arkansas park.
