Swarovski Austrian Crystals

Shown on the left are bicone Austrian crystal beads in 3 sizes.  The photo is enlarged to show detail. On the right are the same crystals next to a pencil and tape measure. The light sapphire is shown in 3mm, amethyst is shown in 4mm and rose is shown in 6mm.   Six millimeters would be about the diameter of an eraser on the end of a pencil.

Swarovski Crystals

I sell bicone Austrian crystal in both plain and aurora borealis (rainbow) finish. "AB" stands for aurora borealis.  I have  most of the colors Swarovski offers. 
By the way, "Swarovski Crystal" and "Austrian Crystal" are synonymous.  Swarovski is the only company allowed to make crystals in the country of Austria. So, when you say "Austrian crystal" you're automatically referring to Swarovski. And, please, they're Austrian Crystals, not Australian Crystals! Different continent, baby!

Colors
If there is a color that you want and you don't see it here, contact me. I might have it in stock. And, if I don't, I might be able to order it for you.
For the most part, I only stock colors that I like. Swarovski has come out with a lot of new colors in the last two years that are just a big "so what".

   
There are no quantity discounts. I'm giving you my best price no matter how many or how few you buy.
Normal retail for 4mm regular color bicones is $.22 and your price is only $.14.

By the way, many people talk about "Australian crystals" but they really mean "Austrian"!

 

SwarovskiŽ (Swore-off-ski) crystal components are regarded as the highest quality machine cut and polished crystal beads in the world. The demand for luxury products unfortunately can create a host of imitators. The imitators are all over the Internet and at every bead show that we have visited.

The SwarovskiŽ company creates its glass with a special compound that imitators cannot duplicate. This special compound creates the incredible brilliance of their product. The delicate color palette is another quality that sets SwarovskiŽ crystal components apart from others.

With so many crystal beads and components out there, how can you tell if the crystal you are purchasing is actually a
SwarovskiŽ crystal component or an imitation?

Here are some tips that can help you determine which crystals are genuine:
  1. SwarovskiŽ crystals are generally not strung when offered for sale.
  2. SwarovskiŽ crystals are perfectly uniform. Since they are machine cut, each crystal is the same. This means that the height, width and slope are consistent. A hand polished imitator bead will not have as uniform a cut. You may also notice different dimensions from bead to bead.
  3. SwarovskiŽ uses machinery that precisely cuts each crystal. According to SwarovskiŽ, "cutting hard materials such as crystal and gems, in such a way that they have a hundred identical facets in several directions, is a very complicated task; each direction of the reflected light must first be calculated by computer, then this has to be simulated in 3D, optimized and finally converted into control programs for complex machinery." This is just part of the technology that gives SwarovskiŽ crystals their unbelievable flash.
  4. The precision cutting of SwarovskiŽ machinery allows each crystal to have its facet juncture "pointing up". This means the facet junctures all meet at precisely the same point. This is a similar aspect of diamond faceting. See the illustration above.
  5. AB finish SwarovskiŽ crystals have a uniform surface luster. There are no swirling marks from the vacuum process that produces the AB finish, and generally there are no scratches. The "imitations" often have scratches, swirl marks ("oily" looking surface). Some of these imperfections, in the "imposters", have to do with the lower quality of the finish. See the illustration above.
  6. When you look inside the crystal, you will see no bubbles. If you see any bubbles, you know immediately that it is a fake.
  7. Because of its special glass compounds, SwarovskiŽ crystal will out-sparkle a bead of lesser quality when placed in a side-by-side comparison.
