Tana Clymer found a 3.85-carat diamond at the Crater of Diamonds State Park, and it's now hers to keep. ABC News shared the details on Oct. 21.
The Crater of Diamonds State Park is a diamond-bearing site that is open to the public, and what people find there, they get to keep. Clymer, 14, had been searching at the park for a couple of hours, and she was about to run to rejoin her family. She says that something caught her eye, though she thought it was a candy wrapper.
Instead, it was a 3.85-carat diamond. At this point, Tana Clymer has said she may keep the diamond and turn it into a ring, though she wants to see what kind of value it has. If it is worth a substantial amount, she will want to use it to pay for college. Clymer's is the 396th diamond found at the park this year.
Just how much will the 3.85-carat diamond be worth? Of course there is no telling quite yet for certain as every diamond is different. However, a similar diamond found at the park a few years ago fetched about $30,000. Clymer has indicated she is naming the diamond “God's Jewel,” as she credits God for telling her to slow down and see it.
