Visit The Crater Of Diamonds State Park

Arkansas takes its pride in the Crater of Diamonds State Park, the only diamond-producing place in the world open to the public, and it stands out as a unique geological ‘gem’ for you to explore and enjoy. Pun intended.

Did you know that diamonds come in all colors of the rainbow? The three colors unearthed here are white, brown and yellow, in that order, respectively. Crater of Diamonds State Park is a rock hound’s delight since, along with diamonds, more than 40 types of rocks and minerals can be found here. These rocks and minerals include lamproite, amethyst, banded agate, jasper, peridot, garnet, quartz, calcite, barite, and hematite.

And this is how the real diamond hunt looks like.
