Medieval crown jewels on display at Prague castle

The Czech crown jewels went on show at Prague castle Friday, in a rare public display for the 700-year-old items that are pulled out only on special occasions. The medieval works of art consist of a gold crown decorated with 96 precious stones including rubies and sapphires, along with a sceptre, royal orb and other precious objects. "The value of the crown jewels is incalculable. That's why it's impossible to insure them," said David Sebek, spokesman for the president's office.
