Now, this is a case of sheer good luck! The only public diamond mine in the world, Crater of Diamonds offers you a one-of-a-kind adventure – the opportunity to hunt for real diamonds and to keep any you find. And it is here that Mr. Chad Johnson stumbled upon a BIG cube-shaped 4.38-carat, a tea-colored diamond which he almost threw away. Last Saturday Chad dug up his luck but unintentionally left it in his locker. Only on Monday did it dawn to him that his LUCK was shining bright. Johnson’s find is the second-largest diamond uncovered at the park this year. In June, a Louisiana man found a 4.8-carat stone. More than 700 diamonds have been found there this year and this fellow himself has found about 80 diamonds till now.
Since moving to Arkansas from Iowa in February, Johnson said, he was living off money made by selling diamonds. (I am also considering moving to Arkansas seriously!) Park officials declined to speculate how much money Johnson could get for the diamond. However, Johnson suggested he expects much more than what he is used to getting.
