X is for Xilion

Xilion is a type of crystal cut by Swarovski. 
 It seems they've added a few facets to amp up the sparkle!

When I put a regular bicone, next to a xilion cut bicone, you can really see the difference!

I've read that Swarovski is phasing out the plane 'ol bicones and will only be producing the xilion cut bicones as they run out of regular bicone colors!

  1. 2 of the pics won't display! :( But i'm excited for a new crystal cut!!!! Maybe the bicones will drop in price now. I'm a sucker for Swarovski.
