Teenage Girl Unearths 3.85 Carat Diamond in State Park

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Neil Diamond singing "Sweet Caroline" at Fenway Park is pretty cool.

But not nearly as cool as finding a 3.85-carat diamond at a state park that could be worth as much as $30,000!

That's what happened to 14-year old Tana Clymer this weekend, as the Oklahoma City native went digging around Arkansas State Park and came up with a seriously expensive stone.

"I thought it was a piece of paper or foil from a candy wrapper," Clymer told Good Morning America. "Then, when I touched it, I thought it was a marble."

In actuality, it was a teardrop-shaped diamond that could be worth as much as $30,000 and, incredibly, is the the 396th diamond found in the park - which sits on an eroded ancient volcanic - in 2013.

Assistant Superintendent Bill Henderson says visitors are permitted to keep whatever they find at the venue.

"No two diamonds are alike, and each diamond finder's story is unique, too," he said in a statement. "What an experience for Tana to remember the rest of her life."

Tana has named the diamond God's Jewel and told GMA that divine intervention played a role in this discovery.

"I think God pointed me to it," she says. "I was about to sprint to join my family, and God told me to slow down and look. Then I found the diamond."
