Swarovski Light Rose Shimmer: Light Rose crystals by Swarovski are a delicate shade of translucent pink, perfect for handmade October birthstone jewelry, as it nicely matches one of October's birthstones, the gentle pink beryl, Morganite. The Shimmer coating was designed for the dance industry, and adds extra brilliance, color vibrancy and and light refraction, accentuating the wearer's every move. Shimmer 2X means the bead is coated on the entire bead, rather than just half the bead, like most iridescent coatings.
