Nothing like going to the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas and finding a diamond, a big diamond. Over 9 carats.

What did you do over the Labor Day Weekend? I bet it wasn't as successful as the  Arkansas man who found the second-largest diamond to be found at the state park.

According to the Crater of Diamonds State Park website and Facebook page, the man 33-year-old Kevin Kinard of Maumelle, Ar.  He was walking in the diamond fields looking for anything shiny. Well, he found shiny. In fact, he found a big shiny diamond, a big 9.07-carat diamond. When he saw it he told the Park that he just thought it was a piece of glass and just put it in a bag he was carrying around with other stones and rocks he had found.
