Customer Reviews for 5328 4mm XILION Bicone Garnet
"These bicones are fine EXCEPT if you're looking for transparent color, you will be disappointed. These garnets are so dark, they look almost black. I don't like the look, myself - they look a bit cheap. But if you want a very dark bicone in a dark ruby color, it's ok."
Pros: Size, Price, Versatile, Unique, Ease of Use, Quality, Color
"I made a memory wire bracelet wrapping around twice. It is for a friend who just had a baby in January - birthstone: garnet. It turned out so beautiful. Either she isn't getting it or I will have to make another one for myself. The color is a hundred times better in person! I only used some small silver spacers for the color to bounce off. Anyone who buys these will feel they got everything they paid for and more!"

"I adore garnet, siam, burgundy, all the hot romantic colors. For its itty-bitty size, this 4mm spec of crystal packs a whollop of color, balance, and clarity. The more I work with Swarovski, the more they cast a spell over me. Weird but true. —zeekers"
"I love the beautiful deep red color of the garnet crystals! But note, the new Xilion garnet crystal is a darker color than the 5301 garnet crystal, so, you will not be able to mix them without notice."
