MURFREESBORO, Ark. — A 14-year-old girl from Oklahoma City really hit pay dirt during a trip to Diamonds State Park in Arkansas. 

KWTV reports that Tana Clymer found a 3.85-carat canary diamond while she and her family were visiting the park on Oct. 19, 2013. 

“I thought it was a piece of paper or foil from a candy wrapper,” Tana told KWTV. “Then, when I touched it, I thought it was a marble. I think God pointed me to it. I was about to sprint to join my family, and God told me to slow down and look. Then, I found the diamond!”

Tana recently sold the diamond — which she named “God’s Jewel” — for $20,000, according to FOX News.

Tana said she plans to use the money from the recent sale of the diamond to help pay for college. 

Last month, a Louisiana man found a 2.89-carat white diamond at the same park.
