Kentucky man digs up 2.95-carat diamond in Arkansas
You don't have to be a mining company to unearth valuable diamonds, one lucky Kentucky man discovered this July 4.
Terry Staggs was visiting the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas, the only diamond-producing site in the world open to the public, when he came upon a 2.95-carat champagne brown diamond, THV11 reports.
The proud owner of the precious mineral has been visiting the park for 28 years and this is his greatest, but not only, find.
Staggs' diamond is the largest found at the park so far this year.
The biggest diamond discovery by a visitor since the site was established as a state park had a rough weight of 16.37 carats and was dug up in 1975.
