Dude Finds 6 Carat Diamond in Crater of Diamonds State Park: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A man found a 6.19 carat diamond in Crater of Diamonds state park in Arkansas.

Crater of Diamonds state park is the only park where people can come and search for diamonds that they can then keep."



David Anderson moved to Arkansas just so he could be near Crater of Diamonds state park, and devote all his free time searching for diamonds.

The odds that he would ever find a diamond worth more than a few bucks were between zilch and none, this dude is incredibly lucky.

Anderson says he plans on selling the diamond and donating the proceeds to charity. If you believe this, I have a bridge I want to sell you. You don`t freakin` move right next to Crater of Diamonds state park, and risk your marriage by devoting all of your waking hours searching for diamonds, and then when you finally get lucky and find a colossal diamond, sell it and donate the money to charity.

I`d be lucky to find a rusty dime in the gutter, if I found a gleaming 6 carat diamond I`d be living large and charities would be lucky to get a dime out of me.
