Teenage girl finds diamond while digging

  • A teenage girl went digging with her family in Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas and found a diamond about the size of a jellybean. 

    Tana Clymer, 14, said she thought she saw a "piece of paper or foil from a candy wrapper" and then thought it was a marble after she touched it. However, what she found was a 3.85-carat diamond. 

    Over 75,000 diamonds have been discovered at the park since 1906; the largest one was found in 1927. 

    A 12-year old unearthed a 5.16-carat diamond at the site this year. She said she's going to either put it in a ring or use it to pay for college.
