Crater of Diamonds State Park

Arkansas's diamond site, the Crater of Diamonds State Park, is the eighth largest diamond-bearing deposit in surface area in the world. Here you can enjoy the one-of-a-kind outdoor adventure of prospecting for real diamonds. Located in southwest Arkansas near Murfreesboro, this is the world's only diamond-bearing site open to the public. Occurring naturally here along with the diamonds are garnet, amethyst, jasper, agate, quartz, and other rocks and minerals that make this site a rock-hound's delight. And what you unearth is yours to keep. You'll search over a 37 1/2-acre plowed field, the eroded surface of the ancient volcanic pipe that brought the gems to the surface.
