"CAL" is Swarovski's abbreviation for "comet argent light" which is a vacuum metal coating applied to the surface of the stone producing a bright, mirror-like effect. The "V" stands for "reverse," meaning the surface effect has been used as a translucent effect, applied only to the back of the stone. All CAL V and/or crystal ABs, beads or stones, are sparkly and dazzling, but the double cut on these crystals seems to magnify that 100 fold - they will definitely draw attention to any project you use them in!
A small note about foil-backed stones: Swarovski’s sew-ons are excellent quality; I have at least 3 I rarely take off. However, there are chemicals and some oils and lotions that can eat at the foil on the back of the crystal. If in doubt, whether something will hurt the foil, take the ring (or other piece of jewelry off).
thanks for stopping by - hope to see ya again soon.....
