2.89 Carat White Diamond Latest Find at Crater of Diamonds in Murfreesboro, Arkansas!
It's raining diamonds again at Crater of Diamonds State Park in Murfreesboro, Arkansas! This is a pretty big one!
Brandon Kalenda from Maurepas, Louisiana found a 2.89 carat white diamond last Thursday, March 6 at the park.
According a press release from Margi Jenks, Park Interpreter, at the Crater of Diamonds State Park:
This large diamond is the 4th over 1 carat diamond found since February 15.
Brandon Kalenda’s mother-in-law watched the segment of TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting” where the Jim Bob Duggar family visited the Crater of Diamonds State Park. She decided that her family also needed to experience Arkansas’s diamond site, and talked them all into it. So during their travels through Arkansas last week from Louisiana to Minnesota to visit family, they stopped to enjoy the park. While they searched in the park’s 37 ½-acre search area, Kalenda, who lives in Maurepas, Louisiana, unearthed a 2.89-carat white diamond. He named his stone the Jax Diamond after his infant son, Jackson. Kalenda told park staff he plans to keep the diamond.
Weather is starting to warm up and this is such a fun place to bring the family and hunt for diamonds!
