Imagine taking a casual stroll through a state park and stumbling upon a massive diamond. That’s what happened to Kevin Kinard, a 33-year-old visitor to Arkansas’ Crater of Diamonds State Park, over Labor Day weekend.
Kinard’s discovery wasn’t exactly accidental, though. He was visiting the park specifically to look through the diamond search area. He didn’t believe he had found anything worthwhile but went to the Diamond Discovery Center anyway to have the park staff identify his find.
