This listing is for eight (even though only four are shown) vintage Swarovski faceted rectangular beads. The hole runs across the bead on the short side, about 1/3 of the way down the crystal. These crystals are the color chrysolite aurora borealis. They are art. 366 (later designated art. 5105), and are 15 x 12 mm in size.

I am new to Etsy, but I have sold my handmade jewelry, vintage beads, and vintage jewelry on eBay for over ten years. On eBay I have over 6000 feedbacks, 100% of which are positive. I have spent years searching out the rarest, most beautiful, and most unusual beads and stones that I could find. My prime focus has been on vintage Swarovski crystals because they are the finest crystals ever made, with extraordinary sparkle, clean facets, and remarkable colors and finishes. I have tracked down caches of unusual cuts and colors of Swarovski crystal from all over the world, even as far away as Shanghai, China. I buy them only in their original packaging as “new old stock” and never sell beads previously used in jewelry. I also have unique collections of vintage glass and Lucite beads and stones of exceptional quality, as well as vintage findings. For years, I have been using these premium beads, stones, and findings to create my own jewelry, and have become known for my distinctive and one-of-a-kind necklaces. I have now decided to share some of these remarkable items used in my creations with others who are passionate about beads. I hope that you enjoy them as much as I do.
