The Esperanza - All American Diamond

I read a fascinating story about the discovery of another diamond in Arkansas this past summer. But it was only recently that I learned the whole story, written by Bryan Boyne, GG, who has graciously given me permission to post it here. There is also link to a video I think you will also enjoy.

Wow, this is the dream of a lifetime! I don't know of anyone who doesn't dream of finding a treasure, and what could be more thrilling than finding one of nature's own creations, and especially in the Crater of Diamonds Park in Arkansas; there can certainly be no question of "origin" here, and its name is so appropriate as well. I've written about Crater Park in several of my books, but it is especially thrilling to find they are still being found, and even more thrilling to see such wonderful collaboration between the person who found it and others whose experience and insights are so critical to making sure this gem receives the attention it deserves: the American Gem Society (AGS), a local jeweler (Stanley Jewelers), an amazing cutter, and an exceptionally gifted Arkansas jewelry designer to craft the piece....and to build a mini-factory in the state in which it was found to handle the cutting and setting was sheer "brilliance" (to be expected, of course, with such a fabulous diamond)! I can hardly wait for the unveiling of the finished jewel!
