Yes, that was what i said.A man found a 4.68 carat white diamond on sept. 20 of 2008.One of arkansas state parks "Crater of diamonds" is a well know diamond field.Let me tell you how it works. The park has a volcanic pipe that is gem bearing. as the surface erodes away more and more of the surface is uncovered. to help even more the park staff plow the 37 acre field. The best time to find the gems are after a rain storm and just after plowing.The cost of entering the park is $7 per adults, $4 for children 6-12 and free for children below 6. The park has exhibits and staff that will show you how and what to do. If you fild anything it's yours.I spent the day there about a month ago. i did not find anything but, that is just my luck or lack of.I had a great time just looking on the ground for the gems.it is a great place to bring the kids and talk about show and tell.they will get an "A". What would you do with your diamond? Would you like to try? I did.

I would have a ring made with it as a center piece. My dream is to have a diamond that is 3 to 5 carats. I'd so much love that. I look and look but the money is moe than I will spend on myself. If it's $100 or less I think real hard about it before buying something for me. If I was able to I'd love to try finding one and being able to say, "I found this myself" But that is not an option for me.

Thank you for the BR, I like it that you chose mine for the BR above others. I know many people here have really good things to say most of the time.
