That’s a 5-point-16 carat honey-brown diamond!

The boy found it in Arkansas’ Crater of the Diamond State Park.

Park officials say it’s the 27-th largest diamond found by a park visitor since the site became a state park in 1972 — and the eighth largest brown diamond.

The boy has reportedly named the large gem “God’s Glory Diamond.”

And the park says it is the 328-th diamond found by a visitor this year.
