[Translate to English:] Der „Dresdner Grüne Diamant“
The "Dresden Green Diamond" entered the Grünes Gewölbe in 1742 as part of the brilliant set. King August III of Poland had purchased the "seladon-green" 41-carat and "extra beautiful" diamond at the Leipzig Fair.
Like almost all famous diamonds, the "Dresden Green" is surrounded by a mystery. Nobody knows by which routes the largest green diamond ever found reached Dresden from India and how much it cost - probably 400,000 thalers, an unimaginably high sum at the time. But the diamond owes its unique colouring to the fact that it had come into contact with natural radioactivity inside the earth - a real miracle of nature.
