If you've still got the dream of striking it rich, you might want to gas up the car and travel to Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas.  You may remember a couple years ago we told you about this park situated on an ancient volcano, where visitors can hunt the crater for diamonds and keep whatever you find.  In 2014, a teenager found a 3.85 carat diamond that sold for $20,000. Last week, a father and daughter duo unearthed a 2.03 carat diamond.  The park routinely stirs up the crater unveiling new areas that may contain diamonds. In fact the park is the world's 8th largest diamond bearing volcanic crater.  As for the daughter/father duo, they say they plan to keep the diamond but haven't decided what to do with it.  Park admission is $8 for adults and $5 for children up to 12.
