This is a genuine Swarovski #4470 cushion square crystal, with a third-party custom coating. Third-party coatings include transparent and opaque coatings that enhance, change or partially cover the base crystal color.
Transparent coatings (such as Purple Haze and Mahogany) change the appearance of the item to a mixed hue, a combination of the base color and the transparent coating.
Opaque/Metallic Coatings (such as third-party Bermuda Blue, Electra and Volcano) coat the crystal in a metallic covering. This coating can be applied to the top or bottom of an item or coat the entire item.
Special Effects include Ultra AB, which is vibrant and saturated with color, taking classic Swarovski crystal fancy stones to a new retro-level.

Swarovski 4470 Cushion Square Stone. 12mm Electra faceted fancy crystals are a cinch to mount into ready-made crystal settings! You can also use these vivid sparkling stones as focal points in seed bead designs, wire wrapping projects, mixed media art and more! We recommend two-part epoxies (NOT superglues) for gluing. Since this Electra coating is not applied by Swarovski, expect the color effect to vary from other stones.
