  • We went to Crater of Diamond State Park. We brought back dirt. This is how you wash the mud to find your diamonds.

    You could be washing some small diamonds through that sieve! It's best to dry the sample before looking at it. After it's dried, different sized sieves should be employed, even down to 0.3 mm Then, each sieved size should be observed separately on a black rubber mat because diamonds can be better seen on a dark background!

    Turkey trying to find a diamond on the cheap for his fiance', he's already checked the jewelry stores. I'm a cheapskate who recognizes a cheapskate when he sees one! Lol. Actually looks more like the fiancé herself on closer inspection. She's probably given up on her beau.

      It is truly an honor to make your acquaintance. My parents named me for the character Audra Barkley on "Big Valley".
      When you get to creator of diamond, there are a few park rangers that will give you demos on how to find diamonds. They have someone who can identify everything for you as well.
      It will be hot in July so bring plenty of water and a hat. They have a water park next door to cool off if you bring you swimming suit. They do rent things like screens and other equipment there just FYI.
      I would take home your bucket of dirt. You can use a blacklight to find you diamond on the dirt is some advice that we got. If you find anything, I would be interested to know. :)

    Are those other minerals worth any money?

      +Bryan Kye Thank you for your question. According to, Jasper is worth between $2 and $5 per carat. You can take a 5 gallon bucket out of the park so you can look to see if you got anything at home.
