14-year old girl finds 3.85 carat diamond in the dirt

Tourists will be flooding into the Arkansas Crater of Diamonds State Park after a 14 year old visitor found a nearly 4 carat diamond after digging in the dirt for nearly 2 hours.

The State Park is the only U.S diamond producing site open to the public. Tana Clymer of Oklahoma City named her stone "God's Jewel" and said she might keep it. To date this year 396 diamonds have been found at the park, experts say because of heavy rainfall that has washed away much of the surface dirt leaving the precious gems exposed to searchers.

Other precious stones found at the prk include amethyst, gamet, peridot, jasper, agate, and others.

Tana said that she may turn the diamond into a ring or, depending on how much it's worth...she may sell it to help pay for college.  Smart Girl!

So, if you're looking for a profitable place to take your next vacation, consider the Arkansas Crater of Diamonds State Park. You could score big, just like young Tana.
