It's rare that something you've been asking to do for years turns out to be greater than you hoped. This is one of those times. Tana Clymer's family went on vacation to Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas, after her mother, Amanda Giordano, spent years asking her husband to take them all there. Finally, after a boy found a 5-carat diamond at the park in April, Brian Giordano agreed to a fall trip. Clymer found the 3.85-carat canary diamond on Saturday after about two hours of searching. Thanks to the park's "finders keepers" policy, she and her family are likely several thousand dollars richer. The jelly bean-sized diamond is gem quality, and though the park's experts don't do appraisals, they did tell the family a similar gem found in 2006 sold for about $30,000. "At first I thought it was a marble until I laid it in my hand," Clymer told The Oklahoman. "Then, I knew it was something." Then Tana screamed, "Mama, mama I found something," Amanda Giordano said.
