Naturally occurring green diamonds are some of the most rare and valuable, diamonds in existence. One of the most famous examples is the 41 carat Dresden Green, a historic stone dating back to the 18th century that is housed in a German museum. Unlike emeralds or tourmalines, green diamonds are distinguished by a pale pastel hue rather than a vivid, saturated green. This stone is an exemplary specimen — most green diamonds have an uneven dispersion of color but this diamond delicate shade of celadon running throughout.
