More than 75,000 diamonds have been found here.

Two frequent visitors to Arkansas’ Crater of Diamonds State Park have found a 1.73-carat stone, the third-largest diamond discovered at the park this year.

The lucky jewel-hunters were Doug Nelsen of Winneconne, WI, and Jack Pearadin of Murfreesboro, AR, ArkansasMatters.com reports.

The news outlet describes the diamond as "a pea-sized white gemstone, which has a brownish tint."

Nelsen and Pearadin had been searching at the park as a team for close to a year.

More than 75,000 diamonds have been found at the Crater of Diamonds since 1906. On its website, the park explains what visitors can expect:

“You’ll search over a 37 ½-acre plowed field that is the eroded surface of the world's eighth largest diamond-bearing volcanic crater. If you find a diamond, it is yours to keep.”

In October a father and daughter from Washington state found a 2.03-carat white diamond at the park.
