Bling it on: Girl finds 2.9-Carat diamond in park

Nicole Ruhter and her family didn't have much luck during the day finding anything spectacular while visiting Crater of Diamonds State Park. [It's a park in Arkansas that allows people look for and keep the diamonds they find.] But alas, at the end of the day they did make a find. She found a tea-coloured 2.93-carat diamond. It's estimated to fetch between $15,000-$60,000 depending on it's imperfections. Yowser! Crater of Diamonds State Park opened in 1972 and is the only diamond-producing site open to the public.

Here, you are invited to prospect in the park's diamond search area, a 37-acre plowed field that is the eroded surface of an ancient volcanic pipe that 95 million years ago, brought to the surface the diamonds and some of the semi-precious stones lucky visitors find here today.


was kind of praying to God. I was saying, 'I don't care if it's worth whatever it's worth, I don't care if it's a tiny little sliver of something, I just want something


So far this year, Crater of Diamonds State Park visitors have found 332 diamonds
