Bobbie Oskarson finds this little sparkling thing after only 20 minutes of searching


Oskarson was searching for precious stones at the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Murfreesboro with her boyfriend when she found Lady Luck on her side and led her to an 8.52-carat diamond.


Waymon Cox, a park interpreter, described the diamond as a capsule-shaped crystal that displays a stunning metallic beauty.

“It features smooth, curved facets, a characteristic shared by all unbroken diamonds from the Crater of Diamonds,” he continued.

Bobbie names the diamond after her niece, Esperanza


Esperanza is said to be the fifth-largest diamond found in the park


Esperanza is the Spanish term for “hope.”
