3mm XILION Crystal Beads

Swarovski bicone crystals have been upgraded to a new XILION cut. They are now known as XILION beads and boast 24 facets compared to the bicone's 16, so are much more sparkly! They are also slightly rounder at the centre so are more comfortable to wear. The XILION crystal beads can be used in conjunction with old bicone crystal beads as their shape and size remain the same, however we would not recommend using them in the same bead weaving patterns.
