, in the Crater of Diamonds State Park
public search field. It was cut to 1.09 carats (220 mg) in 1997, and graded a "perfect" 0/0/0 by the American Gem Society
in 1998 and graded perfect by the Gemological Institute of America
, making it the first diamond from Arkansas to receive such an AGS grading
