Texas Man Unearths 2.13-Carat Diamond

MURFREESBORO, Ark. (September 30, 2013)—Clay Jarvis of San Antonio has unearthed a 2.13-carat diamond at Arkansas' Crater of Diamonds State Park.

Jarvis was in nearby Texarkana on business when he decided to visit the park, which is the only diamond-producing site open to the public.

Jarvis found the champagne brown diamond Saturday after searching for about 90 minutes.

Park interpreter Margi Jenks said the diamond is somewhat square in shape and about the size of a pencil eraser.

It was the 368th diamond found at the park this year and the fifth diamond this year weighing more than 2 carats, she said.

Jarvis says he named the stone the Nona "J'' Diamond for his wife, April.
