I'm in Las Cruces NM and last night i saw a story on the news that made me smile. It was about this fellow that found a two carat diamond in I think Arkansas at Crater of diamonds. OK nice story but when the camera showed him standing next to his AS, well alot of people must be sending him good karma for sure. Sorry no link.

Hey, that's cool! Hope he doesn't make a mistake and trade "up" for a toy hauler.

I only found 4 links on Google News and none had a photo either. Thanks for the report.

I think this was a couple weeks ago - it was in our papers here. You're right, Crater of Diamonds is here in Arkansas, and is a very popular destination.

I found a pic of the diamond and of him with it, but nothing on the 'Stream.
