A 12 year old Boy Scout, Michael Dettlaff, from North Carolina, finds a huge diamond in Crater of Diamonds State Park, which is in Arkansas. Talk about a summer he’ll never forget! He said,  “I was looking around on the ground and found it on top. It was very glassy. Very smooth. It didn’t look like anything else around it,” he told Good Morning America.

The 5.16-carat gemstone, is the 27th largest diamond ever found at this diamond site. When cut, the honey-brown diamond could possibly be worth as much as $15,000, GMA stated.

Michael got the honor of naming his prized diamond, which he named: “God’s Glory Diamond.”
