Liden, a resident of Poulsbo, Washington, was on his third day in the park when he found the stone. “I saw it shining as soon as I turned the screen over and immediately knew it was a diamond”, the lucky man described the experience, “I was shaking so bad, I asked my buddy to grab it out of the gravel for me!”

It is the largest find at the park since October 2020. 121 diamonds have been registered at Crater of Diamonds State Park in 2021, with a total weight of over 20 carats.
