In the beginning, crystal fashion jewelry started through natural quartz crystals. These crystals were cut and polished using a machine designed by Daniel Swarovski in 1892. The hues of the beads are different from one another, there are those that would have darker hues, lighter hues and even transparent beads. For a rainbow burst sparkle, manufacturers, specifically Swarovski, uses an Aurora Borealis finish. Today, these crystals can be bought in various shapes and sizes, some may even offer customizable shapes for a more expensive price.
