An Arkansas woman has reason to celebrate this Monday after a weekend adventure turned up an amazing discovery.

Susie Clark uncovered the gem at Arkansas's Crater of Diamonds State Park. The white, teardrop-shaped diamond is about the size of a pinto bean and is 3.69 carats.

Park officials say more than 75,000 diamonds have been found in a crater at the park over the last 100 years, but that Clark's find is the largest ever.

And, lucky for her, visitors get to keep what they find!

There's no estimate just yet on how much the diamond is worth.
