Man finds big diamond
A man visiting a diamond park with his fiancee found a 3.92-carat white stone, but it’s not going to go onto the finger of his betrothed.
That’s because she already has a ring — albeit only 1 carat — with a setting.
Eric Blake, 32, of Appleton, Wis., spotted the stone Tuesday along a trail at Crater of Diamonds State Park when he set down a bucket of mud he was carrying to a wash basin.
"I put the bucket down to switch hands. I looked down and there it was," Blake said.
His fiancee, Susan Gabrielson — who has "only one carat on her finger" — accompanied Blake to the park this week.
Crater of Diamonds is the world’s only diamond-producing site open to the public, and visitors can keep the stones they dig up.
