A: Crystal is a clear colorless crystal. The Crystal AB color has an iridescent coating with a rainbow reflection. It has a slight pink hue.

A: Swarovski uses a special effect coating for AB colors that has a blue tint and often it is reflected in the color of the crystal.  Many AB colors look different than color name and often bluish due to blue tint.  Be aware that there are slight color changes due to lot numbers if reordering these special effect colors. Allow for these variations if reordering the same color.
