What would you do if you found a Canary Diamond?

An Oklahoma teenager Tana Clymer found a 3.85 carat canary diamond at Arkansas Crater of Diamonds State Park.  Tana, 14 and her family visited the state park after she found out about a boy who found a 5 carat diamond there and wanted to try her luck.

While at the 37 acre park she dug through dirt for about two hours before something caught her eye.  “I thought it was a piece of paper or foil from a candy wrapper”, she said. It was a jelly bean size teardrop-shaped, yellow stone.  “When I touched it, I thought it was a marble,” she said. “ I think God pointed me to it. I was about to sprint to join my family and God told me to slow down and look.  Then I found the diamond.”

Tana is excited about her findings and stated she either keep the diamond for a ring or if its worth a lot use the money from selling it for college.   The park has a finders-keepers policy, so Tana gets to keep her diamond.  Her diamond is 396th found so far for this year in the State Park.  More than 75,000 diamonds have been unearthed at the site since 1906. Other semi-precious stones and minerals, including amethysts, garnets, jasper, peridot and quartz, are also there for the finding.

I think I will go to the park, maybe I’ll get lucky!!!! I would display it at Diamonds by Eyal!
