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.
