See, It Does Pay to Visit Arkansas
At least, it did for 9-year-old Matthew Smith of Dallas, who went with his family to the finders-keepers Crater of Diamonds State Park in Murfreesboro and walked out with a 2.75-carat diamond that sounds almost edible, from this story's description: "His diamond is about the size of an M&M candy and is a dark, warm brown about the color of a cola drink. Its shape is similar to that of an ice cream cone." Least surprising fact: He's keeping it "as a souvenir." --Robert Wilonsky
