Generally speaking, synthetic crystals are made of glass that has had minerals added to the standard glass formulation to make the end product more brilliant. Typically this involves the use of lead oxide because it gives the crystal a much higher index of refraction; the highest lead content on the market currently is Swarovski crystal beads.
These green crystal beads are 5mm rounds on a 12" strand, and have a very subtle, translucent green coloring. Each bead is faceted beautifully to sparkle in the light, making these beads excellent accent additions to any beading project!
Glass is considered to represent free-flowing spirituality, as well as a reflective barrier against unwanted or negative energies. It is believed that Glass represents all four elements because of the process in which it is created, as well as focus, rebirth, and clarity.
