Together they weigh nearly 23 carats and were among 769 carats of diamonds that were mined in Arkansas in 1931. Each of these gems is unique in color, size, and quality. The author uses 19 photos and charts to help these rare, USA diamonds tell their own stories. Read this fascinating account of history, science, and discovery.
