Heliotrope is a beautiful color & finish for larger beads. However, it is difficult to see the full effect in a 4mm bicone.
Just what I was looking for!
Was making Swarovski covered barrettes with these... didn't have enough, so combed the internet and various bead stores for it... Lo and behold, found them here at ArtBeads and they were on sale!
bracelet combined with white opals
This is a very unusual crystal. I like the blue and silver shimmer it gives combined with white opals.
The color of the bicone in the picture is much more prettier. The bicone looks more silvery instead of blueshish-purple.
