In sizes SS5 - SS20 the Maxima crystals have 15 facets, this gives extra sparkle and works well for fashion embellishment, dressmaking, greetings cards and costume design. This crystal is a beautiful almost clear colour but with an undercoat of blue/silver. It isn’t bright and bold like Aquamarine or Light Sapphire and is the perfect choice for adding subtle colour to your design.
All Preciosa non hotfix crystals are lead free, making them safe to apply when using as face, body and tooth gems. Popular sizes for tooth crystals are SS2 - SS10
