My family and I have enjoyed going here at least 2 times a year, finding diamonds is not a easy as I hoped. There's a learning curve, our first time out we were totally unprepared! but it was a spur of the moment trip that turned into our first but certainly not last! we had a great time they have a beautiful and and very informative exhibit there, as well as more than just diamonds there are multiple typed of minerals and rocks. i would suggest anyone who hasn't been there or just wants to check it out, GO! It is always a fun way to pass the day, a few tips they use a tractor to turn over the top layers of material and when it rains new stuff works it way to the top catching this crater at these times will increase odds. Also finding diamonds takes multiple methods at once starting with learning as much as possible about Kimberlite also you will want to carry your own buckets and classifiers from 1/2 in to around a number 20 a bunch of smaller diamond are found this way. they provide wash tanks that has covered awning so you can classify in the shade and out of the rain if so happens to hit. I found my first diamond our fouth trip out for my birthday it was cold,wet soggy and hard to see anything sparkling without the sun so we found a random spot for each of us to gather a bucket full of material and I started washing and using the classifiers, my third 1/8 inch classifier I gave a good shake and did the flip and smack upside down and there it was a small diamond white in color, oily slick feeling in my fingers a texture I will never forget, not the greatest clarity or big enough to cut, But MY FIRST and sure not to be my last diamond. But aside from all that was it was always just a blast for my Family and I to go every chance we get, we will continue to go as much as possible. I do wish there was more gold and treasure hunters here in Arkansas it would sure bring to light all the different minerals and wonderful sights and treasure stories Arkansas has to offer.
