Susie Clark, of Evening Shade, was digging near the South Washing Pavilion of the park’s 37 ½-acre search field on Thursday when she came across a 3.69-carat white diamond.Park officials said in a news release that Clark found the gem on the surface of the field after she asked God, “Are you going to bless me and let me find a diamond today?” Shortly after her prayer, Clark saw the diamond sticking out of a furrow ridge in the plowed dirt. She knew it was a diamond, and said to herself, “This is a diamond. And it’s a big one!”
They think it’s because of all the rain! I mean, I hadn’t thought of that, but it’s an interesting thought. Since the rain has come and washed everything away, or a lot of the dirt away, it might be easier to find diamonds there.
Get this, over 75,000 diamonds have been found there since the first ones in 1906. It became an Arkansas state park in 1972. So, maybe a visit is in order!
Apparently they had also been doing some plowing… but this chick found a 6.19 carat white diamond. Named it the Limitless Diamond.
