The "Dresden Green" is a rare Type IIa (internally flawless) 41 carat natural green diamond, which probably originated in the Kollur mine in India. It was acquired by Augustus III of Poland from a Dutch merchant in 1742 at the Leipzig Fair. In 1768, the diamond was incorporated into an extremely valuable hat ornament, surrounded by two large and 411 medium-sized and small diamonds. This is the setting that the Dresden Green still appears in today.
