Crater of Diamonds State Park "Esperanza Diamond"

Mike Botha, a master diamond cutter with Embee Diamonds, is headed to Little Rock, Arkansas to work with the Esperanza diamond.

The Esperanza is an 8.52 carat diamond that was found in the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas.
He got a chance to peer into the heart of the uncut diamond last week, using special equipment. He said it appears to be completely colourless. "This could be potentially, a flawless diamond."

It is icicle-shaped, so he had to come up with a unique design to maximize the beauty of this particular diamond. He said the baseline value for the Esperanza is $200,000, but it could go much higher.
The Crater of Diamonds is a 911 acre state park in Murfreesboro, Arkansas that contains a 37.5 acre plowed field in which visitors can literally dig for diamonds.

It's the world's only diamond-bearing site that's accessible to the public.
The largest diamond ever discovered in the US, the 40.23-carat Uncle Sam, was found there in 1924. It was cut twice, resulting in a final 12.42-carat (2.484 g) M-color, VVS1 clarity emerald-cut diamond. In 1971, the Uncle Sam was sold for $150,000.
