The Imperial Crown of Austria. Made in 1602, this crown has been used by the Habsburg monarchs of Austria, the Holy Roman Empire, and the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and the kings of Hungary and Bohemia. The crown combines the traditional crown form of secular rulers with the mitre form of religious leaders. It is embedded with diamonds, precious stones, and pearls. The large stone at the very top is a blue-green emerald. (Imperial Treasury, Vienna)
