Austrian crystal beads are very brilliant, and cut to perfection.  For a similar-looking, but not as brilliant, less expensive glass bead, you might try a Czech Fire Polish bead (under "Glass Beads").   These beads come in a variety of colors and special finishes.  "Crystal" means clear.  "Jet" is black.  An "AB" or Aurora Borealis finish gives a multi-color shine to the bead.  An "effect" is one of several different finishes which give various color effects to the bead.

Both the Czech crystal and the Austrian crystal are equally as bright. The Austrian colors are more intense. The Austrian facets have sharper edges.
