Aurora Borealis (AB) adds a gorgeous pastel iris 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!
- All the Swarovski beads, pendants and prisms in this category have the AB effect applied to clear, transparent crystals, giving you a light, magical look with flexible design options.
- A few beads in this category are "AB 2x" - they have the AB coating applied to both sides of the bead, rather than just one side.
- This iridescent AB coating can be difficult to perfectly capture in photos and illustrations: some images may capture the blue flash, others may capture a yellow or pink flash, but all of these sparkling crystals perfectly match each other in real life. Plus,their subtle iridescence blends nearly effortlessly with most other colors!
