Treasures dating back to the 18th century that was taken in 2019 from a museum in Dresden and sold for a total of €113 million (£98 million; $119 million) have reportedly been recovered by the German police.
After being stored safely in Berlin throughout the previous night, the authorities gave over 31 artifacts to the Green Vault museum.
According to reports, the things were discovered during conversations with the attorneys of the six individuals who are presently on trial for the crime.
One of the things is a breast star that is adorned with diamonds, and another is a Heron Tail hat adornment that is lavishly jeweled.
The burglars took the valuables from a collection that had been started in 1723 by Augustus the Strong, who was the monarch of Saxony at the time. They remained there until the heist in 2019, at which time they were referred to in German as Dresden's Grünes Gewolbe, the name of the vault.
The authorities in Germany think that the theft was well-planned and carried out professionally. Before getting into the museum, the criminals lit a circuit-breaker panel on fire, which caused the surrounding streets to be in complete darkness.
The gallery was then broken into by several people wearing masks, who then smashed a glass display case with an axe and stole the diamonds using fishing wire to retrieve them.
After that, they made their run in an Audi, which the police afterward discovered burning in an underground parking garage. It is thought that the whole procedure took less than ten minutes to complete.
Now that the objects have been recovered, experts will have a look at them to determine whether or not they are legitimate.
However, not every one of the artifacts has been located thus far. There is still no sign of an epaulet that was supposed to have a priceless stone known as the Dresden White Diamond attached to it.
The authorities have not provided many specifics on the protection measures used for the gems.
According to reports from AFP and other news agencies, the criminal proceeding against the accused burglars will pick up where it left off on Tuesday.
The Residenzschloss, which was once used as a royal palace, is home to the Green Vault collection, which is shown in eight elaborately decorated chambers.
During World War II, Allied bombing destroyed three rooms in the museum; nevertheless, the museum was brought back to its former splendor after the war.
The name "Green Vault" comes from the fact that some of the chambers within were painted a shade of green that resembles malachite.
There are around three thousand pieces of jewelry and other treasures that have been adorned with gold, silver, ivory, and pearls.
Augustus the Strong was the one who first started the collection. He first held the position of Elector of Saxony, which made him eligible to vote for the position of Emperor of Germany. Later, he was crowned King of Poland.
