Okla. Teen Sells Diamond She Found For $20K

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An Oklahoma City girl has sold a 3.85-carat diamond she found at an Arkansas park for $20,000.

Tana Clymer told television station KWTV that she plans to use the money from the recent sale of the yellow diamond to help pay for college.

Tana found the diamond last October while hunting for gems with her family at Crater of Diamonds State Park in Murfreesboro, Ark. She says she couldn't believe her good luck and asked her father if she was dreaming.

The park is the only diamond-producing site in the U.S. that is open to the public. Other gems discovered at the state park include amethyst, garnet, peridot, jasper, agate, calcite, barite, and quartz.

The yellow diamond the teen found is teardrop-shaped and about the size of a jellybean.

Sorry, I'm talking about (chevyle 33) and his indecent remarks. He has engaged in brutalizing a child. Even if it is by typing.

It's my understanding that child molesters don't do so well once they find themselves in jail.

You are so incredibly lucky. I am so glad to hear you are using the money for a good purpose. Twenty thousand dollars would be a life changing amount of money for my family. When I think of people that drop ten thousand dollars for a designer hand bag, I get physically ill. My family has lived off that amount of money for a year!!!!! Congratulations on your incredible find!!!!!!
