MURFREESBORO, Ark. – A Louisiana woman found a 2.09-carat white diamond at Crater of Diamonds State Park over the weekend.
Park officials say Rhonda Bankston, of Baton Rouge, La., found the gem Sunday afternoon. She says she visited the state park after watching a segment about it on The Travel Channel.
After her diamond is appraised, Bankston will decide whether to keep it or sell it. The park says Bankston's diamond is the shape and size of a tooth, and that it looks like a frosted ice cube.
Park officials say the gem — named the Dream Angel — appears to be flawless.
