Dresden Green weighs 40.70 carats (it was a 119.50 carats rough diamond), it's a Green color diamond. It was discovered in India in 1743. The legendary Dresden Green will travel to the Smithsonian Institution from its home in the Green Vaults of the Albertinum Museum in Dresden, Germany. Its long and dramatic history dates back over three centuries to the early 1700s, when it was purchased by Friedrich Augustus I of Saxony. The Gemmological Institute of America examined the stone in 1988. The clarity grade determined by GIA was VS1 and the gem has the potential of being internally flawless. The gem measures 29.75 × 19.88 × 10.29mm. Unbelievably, the GIA graded the symmetry good and the polish very good. Also, the Dresden Green has a natural green body color. This is extremely rare. The Dresden Green remained at the Smithsonian until January of 2001, when it returned the Albertinium Museum in Dresden, where it remains to this day.
