‚ÄčOne lucky, lucky teen from Oklahoma City just made a cool 20 grand by selling a diamond she found in October. 

Here it is: a 3.85-carat canary yellow diamond. The jewel is only the size of a jelly bean, but Tana Clymer was able to sell it for more than a pretty penny. (Via NewsOK)

TANA CLYMER: "Whenever I found it, I asked my dad if it was a dream, and I said, 'But don't pinch me!' And I keep saying that to this day." (Via KWTV)

Tana found the gem when she and her family took a trip to the Arkansas Crater of Diamonds State Park, where visitors can dig for diamonds to keep. (Via NBC)

She says she was running through the park to leave after two hours of digging when something made her slow down and walk. 

The teardrop-shaped diamond had caught her eye. Tana named her find "God's Jewel," and at the time, she thought she might make it into a ring. (Via ABC)

But now that the 14-year-old was able to sell it for $20,000, Fox News reports she plans to use the money for college. 

Tana's canary stone was the 396th diamond found in the park during 2013 alone. A 12-year-old boy also made headlines when he found a 5-carat rock in August that year.
