Where will you be taking your next vacation? I would love to go Arkansas and check out Crater Of The Diamonds State Park. It is one of the only places in the world where you can search for diamonds on top of a real ancient volcano. Crater of Diamonds located in 99, opened in 1972 and so far over 33,000 diamonds have been unearthed.

Just recently a woman from Aurora Colorado found a 2.63 white diamond, at first she thought it was a piece of glass and much to her surprise was the largest diamond found this year at the park. A woman from Longmont Colorado in 2015 also found a diamond at Crater of Diamonds State Park. It was 8.52 carats.
The largest diamond ever found at the park was in 1924, and the diamond weighed 40.23 carats. If you are planning a family vacation, this might be worth the trip.
