This is the true story of how I sought for, and found a 2.13-carat, brown diamond at Arkansas’ Crater of Diamonds State Park. I had it cut into a lovely, 1.21-carat marquise diamond. I then had it graded and appraised. It is worth $9,800. My discovery was awarded “One of the Best Finds of 2010” by the editors of Western and Eastern Treasure Magazine.
