God's Jewel': Teen Makes Really Lucky Find in State Park

“At first I thought it was a marble until I laid it in my hand."

It shouldn't come as quite a surprise that a teen found a diamond in Arkansas' appropriately named Crater of Diamonds State Park, but the size of the rock is what's stunning.

Tana Clymer, a 14-year-old from Oklahoma City who was vacationing with her family over the weekend, found a 3.85-carat diamond in the Murfreesboro park, according to The Oklahoman. She's calling it  "God's Jewel."

The yellow diamond is likely worth thousands of dollars.

“At first I thought it was a marble until I laid it in my hand,” Clymer told the newspaper. “Then, I knew it was something.”

Joan Ellison, Arkansas State Parks spokeswoman, said about 400 diamonds have been found in the park in this year alone, but not all are the size and quality of the one found by Clymer, The Oklahoman reported.

Diamonds and other gems are relatively popular finds at the more than 37-acre park, which has a finders keepers policy.
