Arkansas Teen Finds 7 Carat Diamond

Going camping is one of my favorite things in the world to do.  Building fires, trying to figure out the tent for hours, then throwing said tent in to the aforementioned fire out of frustration – there’s really nothing like it!  For reals though, I love the serenity and the peace.  I am also a big fan of unusual geology – that’s why I really like camping in Arkansas.  You’ve got isolated camping spots, great geology, and a surprisingly low number of Jason Voorhees-type serial killers.

One of the coolest things to do when you go camping in Arkansas is going over to the Crater of Diamonds State Park.  It’s no secret that it’s a mineral rich state, but did you know that you can go and dig up diamonds there for yourself?  It’s true!  You pay the nominal entry fee ($10 for adults and $6 for kids) and it’s diamond-town for you!

According to KSLA – that’s exactly what happened when 14-year-old Kalel Langford, of Centerton, Arkansas found the 7th-largest diamond at the park since 1972.  His 7.44 carat find is potentially worth tens of thousands of dollars.

Since his name is Kalel (after Superman’s Kryptonian Name), the young gem magnate named the stone the “Superman diamond.”
