Q.
When a crystals description includes Xilion, what does that mean?
- Debbie
A.
The term Xilion is a particular faceting style, or cut, patented by Swarovski and launched in 2004 in their bead line. These crystals are cut with an increased number of facets, which alternate from large to small facets, creating higher brilliance and more intense light reflection.
