Texas Man Unearths 2-Carat Diamond at Ark. Park 9/30/13
MURFREESBORO, Ark. - A Texas man has unearthed a 2.13-carat diamond at
Arkansas' Crater of Diamonds State Park.
Clay Jarvis of San Antonio was in nearby Texarkana on business when he
decided to visit the park, which is the only diamond-producing site open to the
public. Jarvis found the champagne brown diamond Saturday after searching for
about 90 minutes.
Park interpreter Margi Jenks says the diamond is somewhat square in shape
and about the size of a pencil eraser. She says it's the 368th diamond found at
the park this year - and the fifth diamond this year weighing more than 2
Jarvis says he named the stone the Nona "J" Diamond for his wife, April.
