MURFREESBORO, Ark., April 18 (UPI) -- A man found a 6.19 carat diamond in Crater of Diamonds state park in Arkansas.

David Anderson was searching for diamonds when he came across a 6.19 carat diamond he has dubbed "The Limitless Diamond." Anderson moved to Murfreesboro just so he could constantly search for diamonds.

The park reports that it is the 15th largest diamond found at the park in the last four decades, and is about the size of a jelly bean.

Anderson says he plans to sell the diamond and donate the money he receives to charity.
