Crater of Diamonds


Located in Murfreesboro, Arkansas, Crater of Diamonds State Park is an 888 acre park that sits atop an eroded volcano pipe. It is the only public diamond mine in the world. For a small fee, visitors can come to the park and dig for diamonds and other gems. Visitors can keep anything they find. Over 24,000 diamonds have been found since the park opened – some have been very valuable. In 1924, a 40 carat diamond worth millions of dollars was found in the park. Several other large diamonds have been found more recently.
