Aspen Brown, a 7-year-old girl, celebrated her birthday with her family on September 1st when she suddenly received a very rare birthday present. The girl found a large brown diamond weighing almost three carats in the Crater of Diamonds State Park in the United States.
It was a special birthday for a seven-year-old girl. Last week he discovered a 2.95-carat brown diamond while visiting Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas.
The American woman was visiting the park with her father and grandmother when she discovered a priceless pea-sized diamond. The park has a 15.2 hectare cultivated diamond field open to the public. Diamonds have been discovered continuously since 1906.
“She felt hot and wanted to sit down, so she went to some big rocks near the fence,” said her father, Luther Brown. “Soon she ran to me and said, ‘Daddy! Daddy! I found something!'”
Finding a gem of that size in such a large diamond field is an “exceptionally rare” find, says Aaron Falke, a research scientist at the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). “Most of what you find is smaller than a grain of rice,” Pahlke said. A diamond found in the park is usually between 0.05 and 0.20 carats.
A park spokesperson told reporters that visitors to the park can keep the diamonds. Waymon Cox, a park employee, called Aspen’s discovery “one of the most beautiful diamonds I’ve seen in years.”
Visitors who find diamonds in a state park often give them names. Aspen’s father said the diamond his daughter found would be named the “Aspen Diamond.”
Already this year, 563 diamonds, totaling 89 carats, have been recorded at Crater of Diamonds State Park.
One to two diamonds every day
Park officials said an average of one to two diamonds are seen by park visitors every day. In 2019, the Aspen Brown diamond was discovered near the site of another large gem, a 3.72 carat diamond.
More than 75,000 diamonds have been found in the state park since the diamonds were first discovered in 1972 by rancher John Huddleston, who owned the land before it became a state park.
