Ark. Man Finds 1.22 Carat Diamond in Park

It might be a hobby, but Steve Lee really knows how to spot a diamond in the rough. Lee’s most recent find — a 1.22 carat, gem-quality diamond — turned up during a recent visit to the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Murfreesboro.

He said he hadn’t been able to hunt for diamonds in more than two years because a disability forced him to use crutches. Lee returned this year after friends persuaded him to take up the hobby again.
