Bill Tryhall, from Albuquerque, was the latest visitor at Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas to find a diamond weighing over two carats. Tryall was vacationing with his two brothers October 10 when he found the diamond.
The 2.28-carat diamond was the 725th diamond discovered at the park this year. Crater of Diamonds is the world’s only diamond “mine” open to the public and where visitors can keep the gems they find. In addition to diamonds, visitors can prospect for garnet, quartz, lamproite, jasper, amethyst, and many other minerals.
