MURFREESBORO, AR – A flawless 2.44 carat white diamond was found over the weekend at the Crater of Diamonds State Park.

The couple that found the gem, Melissa and Kenny Oliver of Rosston, AR, named the rock Silver Moon because of it color and due to the fact that it was discovered during the weekend of the “supermoon” event.

A park spokesman said that the Oliver’s diamond came from the search area’s East Drain where major excavation work was done by heavy equipment in October. A contractor with heavy equipment was hired to move that particular low area about 100 yards west to reveal previously unsearched soil.
