I love the color and will buy it again.
Does this rival a genuine emerald?
If you can't afford the real thing, then Swarovski is the best! Fine craftsmanship, gorgeous colors, fanciful and tried-and-true shapes, nothing beats Swarovski. The new Xilion cut glitters even more and the 6mm size is just a good basic size that can be used in any design.
I am going to use these beads : Light siam, sun, sunflower,emerald, dark indigo, amethyst, and light sapphire to try and make some chakra braclets. I am pleased with the look of all of the bicones.
I used these to make a Christmas Tree ornament for our yearly Christmas Ornament Exchange Party. The color is perfect.
