A California woman visiting the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas hit the jackpot when she discovered a 4.38-carat yellow diamond after less than an hour of searching. Arkansas State Parks said Noreen Wredberg of Granite Bay was visiting the park with her husband and had been looking for gems in an open field for about 40 minutes when she spotted something shiny on the surface. She said, "I didn't know it was a diamond then, but it was clean and shiny, so I picked it up." Park Superintendent Caleb Howell said, "Mrs. Wredberg's diamond weighs more than four carats and is about the size of a jellybean, with a pear shape and a lemonade yellow color." Officials say it's the largest diamond found at the park since October 2020. No word yet on what the thing is worth. (UPI)
