What are "AB" and "AB2X" crystal?
Aurora Borealis (AB) adds a gorgeous pastel rainbow sheen to the sparkle of Swarovski's premium-cut facets. This iridescent coating is named after the beautiful Northern Lights that decorate the arctic skies - you'll find these crystals to be similarly stunning! Crystal AB 2x crystal items have the AB coating applied to both sides of the bead, rather than just one side, like most crystal coatings. This iridescent AB coating can be difficult to perfectly capture in photos and illustrations of crystal: some images may capture the blue flash, others may capture a yellow or pink flash, but all of these sparkling crystal AB crystal components perfectly match each other in real life. Plus,their subtle iridescence blends nearly effortlessly with most other colors!
