According to CNN, another white diamond half the size of a quarter was discovered at Arkansas’ Crater of Diamonds State Park on Wednesday, park officials said.
The diamond, which was shaped like an icicle, the 8.52-carat gem is the fifth-largest diamond found by a visitor to the state park since the site was established in 1972.
Park visitor Bobbie Oskarson of Longmont, Colorado, discovered the diamond while digging around the Pig Pen, a 37-acre search field inside the park named for its muddy terrain after rainfall.
