Boy digs up a 5.16-carat diamond at Arkansas state park
Michael Dettlaff, a 12-year-old North Carolina boy on vacation with his family in Arkansas, made an unexpected discovery at the Crater of Diamonds State Park.
The boy, reports ABC News, found a 5.16-carat honey-brown diamond, which is the 27th largest precious gem found by a park visitor since the site opened in 1972.
According to Park officials, the gem is about the size of a jellybean and is the 328th diamond found by a visitor this year.
Dettlaff has reportedly named the large gem “God’s Glory Diamond.”
If it can be cut and polished, the stone would be worth between $12,000 and $15,000.
