Imagine walking in a park, completely immersed in Nature, and suddenly finding a very unusual stone that immediately strikes you with its shape and color: it looks so beautiful that it could even be mistaken for a precious stone, or for a diamond. What would you do, would you turn to an expert to know what you have in your hands and its value or would you take it home and display it on your shelf? A dilemma in which Noreen Wredberg and her husband Michael found themselves faced with.

The Arkansas couple were strolling through the beautiful surroundings of the American federal state National Park, when the woman suddenly found a stone with a rather curious shape and color on the ground: the size of a bean and shaped like a pear, the stone Noreen found had a rather bright and recognizable green color; this was because the couple had gone for a walk in the park on a beautiful sunny day after a rainy night; often the effect of the rain itself the next day helps enormously in finding translucent gemstones in the ground.

Noreen and Michael thought that the little green stone was no simple pebble, so they immediately approached the Arkansas National Park management for a quick "evaluation". Although the park has repeatedly stated that it doesn't deal with economic and monetary evaluations of precious stones found by chance within the reserve area, they nevertheless managed to discover what Noreen and her husband Michael had in their hands: a real diamond weighing in at 4.38 carats!

This is nothing new for the Arkansas National Park: the people in charge of the American nature reserve said that since 1906, 75,000 diamonds of various carats have been found in the area they manage.

Obviously, the park did not allow the extraordinary precious stone to remain in the hands of the American couple, so much so that now this little green diamond the size of a bean is displayed together with the others which have been found, so that every visitor can admire it in all its splendor. 

Who knows what would have happened if Noreen and Michael had decided to take home that seemingly valueless, shiny green pear-shaped pebble!
