Woman Finds 3.69-Carat Diamond In State Park

When you travel to Arkansas' Crater of Diamonds State Park, odds are, you will find some sort of diamond. Much like the woman in the video above, one park goer found the surprise of her life when she traveled to the park this past Friday.

Bobbie Oskarson of Longmont, Colorado, found an 8.52 carat diamond nestled in the state park. According to park officials, it is the fifth largest diamond ever to be found in the park since it opened in 1972.

Arkansas Diamond Find
One of the parks interpreters, Waymon Cox, said that Oskarson found the gem Wednesday in the 37½ acre search field. NBC Los Angeles reports that she had named it the Esperanza Diamond for her niece's name and the Spanish word for "hope."

The diamond was said to be about three-quarters of an inch long. Needless to say, our next family vacation won't be to the beach: Arkansas here we come!
