8.52-carat diamond found at Crater of Diamonds State Park

A Colorado woman discovered a 8.52-carat diamond in an Arkansas state park – the fifth-largest diamond found in the park since its opening 43 years ago.

Bobbie Oskarson found the diamond Wednesday at the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Murfreesboro.
Park interpreter Waymon Cox said Oskarson found the gem Wednesday in the southwest corner of the 37½ acre search field and named it Esperanza Diamond for her niece's name and the Spanish word for "hope."
