In the spring of 2009, we visited Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas. While we were there the entire state was under severe storm warnings, flood warnings and tornado watches. But if you’ve been diamond hunting before, you know the best time to find them on top of the furrows is after a good rain.
We were a sad, muddy mess, but had a great time regardless of the weather. There had been several good diamonds found during our stay. Unfortunately, we didn’t find any diamonds ourselves, but found some great pieces of mica, quartz, jasper and other “gems”.
If you find yourself traveling the state, you should plan a day trip to the park. Who knows, you may hit “pay” dirt! 😉
