This is a genuine Swarovski #4470 cushion square crystal, with Ultra AB Ruby, a third-party custom coating that adds vivid pink-reds and purple-reds which shift as you view the crystal from different angles. 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.
