4mm Swarovski crystal bicones are also know as Xilion cut beads and are sold in packs of 30 crystals. The Xilion cut has an increased number of smaller and larger facets which will add even more sparkle to your jewellery making designs and beadwork.
Some Swarovski 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.
Swarovski have been creating sparkling crystal beads since 1895 and their crystals are very popular in jewellery making designs, especially bridal jewellery and accessories.
