MURFREESBORO — A Louisiana man has found a 2.89 carat white diamond at Arkansas' Crater of Diamonds State Park in Murfreesboro.

Park officials said Tuesday Brandon Kalenda of Maurepas, La., found the diamond on March 6 and said he plans to keep it. Kalenda named the diamond "Jax Diamond" after his infant son Jackson.

Park Interpreter Margi Jenks says the diamond is the 47th to be registered by park visitors this year and is the fourth weighing more than a carat to be found since mid-February.

Jenks says Kalenda's diamond is triangular-shaped with a metallic appearance and is about the size of an English pea.

I searched, 2.89 carat white diamond value, there are photos of it on line. Looks very clear. The park does not estimate values. Takes a gemologist to do that.
