Several years ago David Anderson heard about the notorious Crater of Diamonds State Park on The Travel Channel. He visited the park in 2007 and never left – figuratively.
Anderson moved to Murfreesboro, Arkansas, in order to be closer to the park. Over the course of the past several years Anderson has found hundreds of tiny diamonds in various shapes. Recently he visited the park after a period of heavy rainfalls that made the conditions easier for those who often visit the park searching for diamonds and other gemstones. The man spent nearly 4 hours before discovering a 6.19 carat white diamond. According to the park’s officials, it’s the 15th largest diamond that has been found ever since 1972. The marquise-shaped gem’s size is near to a jelly bean’s one and is the largest one Anderson has ever found. He’s hoping to sell his “Limitless Diamond” and to donate the money to charity.
According to the Crater of Diamonds’ policies, anyone can keep whatever they find in the 37-acre park.
