FANCY GREEN DIAMONDS
Natural green diamonds are extremely rare--only a handful are introduced into the market each year. Pure green diamonds are valued more than those which are yellowish-green or gray-green.
Fancy green diamonds are sourced from South Africa and other parts of the continent. The green color comes from being near radioactive sources during formation. This process takes at least a million years to occur, hence their rarity!
The most famous green diamond
is the 41 carat Dresden Green Diamond. It has a historical record dating to 1722, when a London news-sheet carried an article about it in its 27th edition. It is currently housed at the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen in Dresden and can be viewed by the public.
