3mm Preciosa Bicone Crystals are packed in bags of 30 beads.
Crystals have been made in the Czech Republic since the 14th Century and Jablonec nad Nisou has long been the centre of crystal glass making in Bohemia. Czech Crystals have adorned the royal court at Versailles, the Ottoman Empire and the Russian Tsars. Nowdays you’ll find Preciosa crystal on the costumes and film sets of the Spice Girls UK tour, Netflix production, The Crown and Matthew Bourne’s ‘The Red Shoes along with many West End Musicals, fashion houses and world champions
Some Preciosa crystal beads have an AB coating or an AB2X coating. AB stands for Aurora Borealis like the Northern Lights. The AB coating on a bead gives it an extra sparkle and rainbow shimmer. AB2X coating is even more sparkly with the AB coating applied all over the bead rather than just on half of the facets.
