Dresden Green

The Dresden Green diamond is unique among world-famous diamonds because its naturally-occurring green color (the result of radioactive elements) is distributed evenly throughout the stone. You can enhance your own precious gem collection with the unique hue of the Dresden Green with a precise replica by The Stonecutter.

Unlike many other historic diamonds, the Dresden Green is one of the few diamonds where there is no controversy regarding its appearance or dimensions.

Dresden Green Diamond History

The biggest mystery surrounding the Dresden Green diamond is its place of origin. Some say Brazil, others say the Kollur mine in India (the source of other famous diamonds, including the Florentine, Koh-i-Noor and Tavernier Blue). However, once the stone reached Europe, its history is clearly documented.

The Dresden Green was purchased by Augustus III of Poland at the Leipzig Fair in 1742. In 1768, the Dresden Green was set in a hat pin, surrounded by more than 400 colorless diamonds. The Dresden Green remains set in the same pin, which is on display in the “Green Vault” at Dresden Castle.

A Rarity for Your Collection

The Dresden Green is a scientific rarity. It is a consistently even apple-green color, unlike most other diamonds exposed to radioactive elements during crystal growth, which only have a green rind. You can make this natural wonder part of your own precious stone collection with a museum-quality replica by The Stonecutter. Order your Dresden Green online.
