In the American state of Arkansas, a man found a large 4.49 carat diamond in the Diamond Crater Park. This was reported in a press release published on the park’s website.
The 34-year-old Steven McCool from Fayetteville decided to spend the whole day in the Diamond Crater after heavy rains created the ideal conditions for searching for diamonds. He discovered the gem just half an hour before the park closed.
The American took his discovery to the Diamond Discovery Center. There, experts found that his diamond was the third largest among those recorded in 2020.
According to a certain tradition, McCull gave his diamond a name. He decided to use the initials of the children and named the stone BamMam. “What is more valuable than a gem? My children. So I named it after my children, and that name will stay with the diamond forever,” says McCul.
Earlier, a bank employee took a walk in the Diamond Crater Park and found a record-breaking nine-carat diamond. On September 7, 33-year-old Kevin Kinard discovered the second-largest diamond in the history of the park.
