Prospecting for Diamonds in Arkansas

Diamonds held in a hand.If you want to dig for diamonds, head for the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas, the only diamond-producing site in the world where the public can search for diamonds.  It is located two miles southeast of Murfreesboro on Arkansas Highway 301.

For only $7 per day (age 6-12, $4; under 6, free), you can explore the 37-acre plowed field which is the eroded surface of an ancient, gem-bearing volcanic pipe.  It is plowed periodically to turn the soil to bring more diamonds to the surface.

Treasure Hunting Vacations in the United States

Summer is almost here and it’s time to plan your vacation.  Why not take a treasure hunting vacation and make some money while having a great time?  These vacation opportunities are available all year, which is a good thing because, once you’ve uncovered treasure and made a little or a lot of money, it becomes addicting!  Get ready to travel for fun and profit.

Did you know that right here in the United States you can dig for diamonds, rubies, sapphires, and opals in addition to gold?  While the destinations we’ll be discussing in the next few blog posts are mines and areas that are open to the public yet commercially managed, don’t underestimate your prospects for profit.  There are still a LOT of gems and precious metals to be found, and people walk away with hundreds and even thousands of dollars in treasure every single day!

While the profit potential is very good at these places, it’s also easy enough that children can do it.  These are wonderful family travel destinations.  Bring the kids and the grandparents and enjoy a unique and wonderful adventure that you’ll never forget.  Treasure hunting for fun and profit.  What could be better than that?!

Our first stop is digging for emeralds in North Carolina.
