A fourteen-year-old girl found a 3.85 carat diamond during a recent trip to Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas.
Tana Clymer was digging in the park on Saturday when she made the discovery. She was about to run and join her family when she says that “God told me to slow down and look.” Clymer then spotted the diamond laying on the ground. At first she thought it was a shiny wrapper from a candy. After touching the diamond she thought it may have been a marble, but then she realized that it was a diamond. Clymer plans to either put the diamond in a ring or use it to pay for college, depending on the value of the diamond. Visitors at the state park are allowed to keep whatever they find. More than 75,000 diamonds have been found at the state park since 1906. The largest ever found at the park was 40.23 carats and was named the “Uncle Sam”, reports USA Today.
Clymer has named her diamond “God’s Jewel.” It is the 396th diamond found at the park this year.
