Diamond maybe. But full of inclusions. Any jeweler could test it.

What are inclusions?
an inclusion is any material that is trapped inside a mineral during its formation. In gemology, an inclusion is a characteristic enclosed within a gemstone, or reaching its surface from the interior. So let's say a diamond is forming and a few atoms of material get suspended inside the diamond. When you view it you can see it.

If you found at the Crater of Diamonds, why didn't you show this to the Park staff? The park staff documents all diamond finds and could have helped you positively identify it as a diamond for you if indeed it is one!
