Teen finds 7.44-carat diamond at Crater of Diamonds Park

Arkansas teenager Kalel Langford, 14, hit the jackpot in 2017 when he found a 7.44 carat diamond at the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas. The teen had only been at the park with his parents for 30 minutes when he spotted a shiny, dark brown gem.

The stone is the 7th-largest diamond found at the Arkansas State Park since 1972. Kalel found the diamond a few inches from a stream of water in the southern portion of the park’s diamond search area.
Crater of Diamonds State Park is a 911-acre Arkansas state park in Pike County, Arkansas.

The park features a 37.5-acre plowed field, the world's only diamond-bearing site accessible to the public.
