Some internet videos can be a guide to profit. She found a diamond by following Youtube guide

Miranda Hollingshead with her amazing find. Yellow diamonds are the least common to discover at the park, followed by brown and white. (From Crater of Diamonds State Park)

Miranda Hollingshead, 27, of Bogata, Texas while visiting Arkansas State Parks, wanted to join the many other people who found genuine diamonds at the park but she wasn't sure what to look for, so she turned to YouTube for guidance, and behold, it worked. She told park guides and the Washington Post

"I was sitting in the shade, watching a YouTube video on how to find diamonds, I looked over at my kid for a second, and when I looked down, I saw it mixed in with other rocks. I ran my hand across it to make sure what it was, picked it up, and yelled across the field to my mom, I think I got one!"

For sure she did have the real m'coy! A fat 3.72-carat yellow diamond, the largest diamond found in the park since 2017, when a high school kid discovered a 7.44-carat brown diamond and was elated for weeks.

She is still awaiting the value report to decide if she should cash it in or just keep as a family heirloom and let the value appreciate over time.

This is part of the benefit of travel. You never know what great memories, items of value or even success at the slot machines you may gain, but one thing's for sure -- if you never go, you'll never know.
