Posted: Updated:

A group of friends unearthed one of largest diamonds ever found in a state park in Arkansas.

Crater of Diamonds state park officials say Daniel Kinney, Thayer Walker and two others found a deep yellow 6.7 seven carat diamond on Monday.

That would make it the ninth-largest diamond ever found at the park, the second-largest this year.

Kinney has already found over 34 diamonds at the park, but this was the first find for Walker, who is writing a book on precious metals and gems.
