A Texas woman found a 3.72-carat yellow diamond at the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas last Friday.
“I was just going to pick up a transmission that day, but my siblings were in town and wanted to do something fun together,” Hollingshead told the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism.
The group searched for around an hour at the 37.5-acre park in in Pike County, Ark., when Hollingshead took a break.
“I was sitting in the shade, watching a YouTube video on how to find diamonds," Hollingshead said. “I looked over at my kid for a second, and when I looked down, I saw it mixed in with other rocks.”
It turned out to be the largest yellow diamond found at the park since October 2013 and the largest diamond of any kind found since March 2017.
