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 crystal beads have such a dynamic presence! The faceting is done perfectly to show off the great refraction within these crystals. The color in person is a nice pale green consistent through each bead, and the size of each bead is approximately 5mm around. These would be ideal in a wide variety of projects, and the upbeat color would make these beads particularly great for kids jewelry projects!
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.
