Crater of Diamonds State Park is the world’s only diamond-bearing site accessible to the public.
The park offers you a one-of-a-kind adventure – the opportunity to hunt for real diamonds and to keep any mineral you find.
Although thousands of people have dug and sifted through the volcanic soil, there are still plenty of diamonds waiting to be discovered. Since the park opened in 1972, more than 30,000 diamonds have been found. This is still a place where diamonds are found regularly.
