Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and now they are a treasure hunter’s dream come true. If you thought that digging your own diamonds was impossible, you are wrong. Put away your metal detector, climb in your car and take a trip to the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Murfreesboro, Arkansas. Yes, Arkansas.
The only conflict you can expect with these diamonds is an argument over when to take the next bathroom break. Crater of Diamonds State Park is the only public diamond mining facility in the world. Their policy on the treasures you unearth? Good, old fashioned finders keepers! Yes, you read that properly. If you dig it up, it is yours.
Recently, a man from Flint, Michigan walked away with a 4.68 white diamond. That’s only the beginning. The largest diamond to be found in the area? A whopping 34.25 carats. Take that, Elizabeth Taylor!
