    5.47-Carat Diamond Found in Ark. Park

    MURFREESBORO, Ark. (AP) -- A Wisconsin man visiting a state park took home the ultimate souvenir: a 5.47-carat canary diamond.

    Bob Wehle of Ripon, Wis., found the diamond at the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Murfreesboro Oct. 14. The park is the world's only publicly operated diamond site where visitors are allowed to search and keep any gems they find.

    Wehle's 5.47-carat diamond is bright yellow and has no visible flaws, said Tom Stolarz, park superintendent. It is the second-largest gem unearthed this year at the park

    This post is my opinion only, and is subject to making me look totally confused

    Arkansas has numerous "look for your own diamond" type tourist spots. Once a year my Girl Scout Troop would go to one in the Ozarks. Never found anything myself. The state's a real rockhound's paradise, though.
