A 7.5 carat diamond was unearthed this week in Arkansas at the Crater of Diamonds State
Park. I grew up 25 miles away from this site which is the only diamond mine in North America, and every time we go back to visit my
parents our sons want to go look for diamonds. This is not a cave like the image the word mine portrays, rather It’s just a big field of dirt.

Gemstones of all kinds are much sought after. Jewelry stores abound with sparkling ornaments in every color imaginable for us to adorn ourselves with. At one time all these precious stones were rocks hiding in the earth covered with dirt and darkness.
