Whilst the exhibits in the treasure chamber of August the Strong merge with its own architecture into a breathtakingly integreated work of art, in the New Green Vault (located directly over the historical rooms) the beauty of a single object is in the foreground. Pieces of the treasure chamber include: the famous Cherry Stone; choice Italian objects of rock crystal; the legendary Green Diamond; the valuable ivory frigate; masterpieces of the Royal Jeweller Johann Melchior Dinglinger (such as the Court of the Grand Mogul); and the Golden Coffee Set.
