Semi Precious & Cubic Zirconia
The Rock Crystal is such a perfect match for our Venetian Beads, and the quality is so clear - it looks like glass. The Crackle Rock Crystal is treated much like the factories in Murano do where hot glass is dropped into cold water resulting in thousands of little cracks. In the Rock Crystal it is then treated to maintain it's strength. In the furnaces of Murano, it is wrapped in another coat of molten glass.
Cubic Zirconia is, of course, a manmade material optically flawless and with almost the hardness of diamonds. A great addition to your jewelry at a reasonable price. Learn about the history of Cubic Zirconia.
