Good to know that a gem variety diamond of more than 6 ct. in weight was found in the Crater of Diamonds State Park.Any visitor can try his luck as the mine is open to public since 1970s. Diamonds are often found in the area, first discovered some time in the beginning of 20th century. The only diamond mine in the USA, developed over lamproite rock which is similar to kimberlite in several respects. The pipe rock is said to of Cretaceous age, emplaced in to sedimentary rocks around 100 million years ago.Largest diamond found from the pipe (also known as "Prairie Creek Pipe") is known as 'Uncle Sam' which weighs a little more than 40 ct. Diamond grade of the mine is poor and was never worked profitably.
