Digging in the Dirt

Jamie Hill, a lucky man known for digging up wonderous finds at his mine north of Charlotte, North Carolina, found a 10-inch, 591-carat emerald Wednesday that, when verified, could well break a North American record for size.

Hill's mined many large emeralds including an 88-carat crystal in 1998.

"I had a fit," said Hill . "I about hyperventilated."
