A 12 year-old North Carolina boy made a gem of a find while traveling with his family in Arkansas.
The boy found the 5.16 carat brown diamond in Arkansas' crater of diamond state park.
Park officials say it's the 27th largest diamond found by a visitor since the site became a state park in 1972, and eighth-largest brown diamond.
The boy has reportedly named the large gem "God's glory diamond."
The park says it's the 328th diamond found by a visitor this year.
