Teacher Finds 2.12-Carat Diamond In State Park

A family vacation to an Arkansas State Park led a teacher to make a “sparkling discovery” when he found a big diamond.Josh Lanik was walking through Crater of Diamonds State Park when he spotted the jelly bean-sized rock and he says he could tell right away there was something different about it.

“I saw the shine, and when I picked it up and rolled it in my hand, I noticed there weren’t any sharp edges,” Lanik says.

Park staff informed him that the 2.12-carat “brandy-colored gem” is the largest diamond found in the park so far this year. They say it’s worth thousands and that recent rain storms may have helped him get lucky.
