He discovered a 2.95-carat diamond on his birthday

A 7-year-old girl received the luckiest gift while celebrating her birthday at Crater of Diamonds State Park: she found a priceless 2.95-carat golden brown diamond.

According to a press release issued by the park, located in Murfreesboro, Arkansas, the discovery of the minor, identified as Aspen Brown, “is the second largest recorded by a visitor to the park this year. ”

The record was surpassed only by the 3.29-carat brown diamond discovered in March.

“The Aspen diamond has a golden brown color and a brilliant shine. “It is a complete crystal, with no broken parts and a small indentation on one side, made by when the diamond was formed,” said Waymon Cox, the park’s assistant superintendent, in a statement.

“It is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful diamonds I have seen in recent years,” he said.

Park officials said the diamond may have resurfaced when a contractor dug a ditch in August to help control erosion in the park’s 37-acre diamond prospecting area.

The precious diamond found in Arkansas by minor Aspen Brown.

How a 7-year-old girl discovered

Brown was visiting the park with his father and grandmother to celebrate his birthday when he picked up a pea-sized gem on a trail along the northeast side of the search area, the release states. .

“She was hot and wanted to sit down for a while, so she walked over to the big rocks near the fence,” said Aspen’s father, Luther Brown. “The next thing I knew, he ran to me and said, ‘Dad! Dad! I found one!'”.

After leaving the park, the family went to the Diamond Discovery Center. There, park staff confirmed that a diamond had been discovered by the minor.

As discovered in Aspen, one or two visitors also find a diamond in the park each day, according to the release. More than 75,000 diamonds have been found in the area since a farmer first identified diamonds in the ground.

The 37-acre field where visitors can hunt for treasure is the eroded surface of a volcanic crater, according to the park.

Apart from diamonds, other precious gems such as amethysts and garnets are also found there as a result of the unique geology of the site.
