  1. Dig for your own diamonds at Crater of Diamonds State Park. Keep the diamonds you find at the only public diamond mine in the world. The park has a 37-acre plowed field where you can prospect for diamonds and other semi-precious stones. Opened as a tourist attraction in 1952, the site was purchased by the state of Arkansas in 1972 and turned into a State Park. Thousands of diamonds have been found at the park. Some of the biggest include a 40.23-carat diamond in 1924, a 16.37-carat diamond in 1975 and 15.33-carat diamond in 1956. The park averages about two diamonds finds a day, most being about the size of a match head or smaller. Posted by: diamondhunter on Apr 27, 2008 (0) (0)
