Kinard, a bank Manager, said he and his friends hauled sifting equipment to the state park in Murfreesboro.Kinard noted that he’s been visiting Crater of Diamonds regularly since he was a kid but had never stumbled upon a Diamond until Sept.7.“I only wet sifted for about ten minutes before I started walking up and down the plowed rows,” he said.“Anything that looked like a crystal, I picked it up and put it in my bag.” While searching in the southeast portion of the 37.5-acre Diamond search area, Kinard scooped up a marble-sized crystal that had a rounded, dimpled shape.

“It kind of looked interesting and shiny, so I put it in my bag and kept searching,” Kinard said.“I just thought it might’ve been glass.”
