The Swarovski bicone #5301 cut has been discontinued since March 2009 and replaced with the #5328 bicone cut. The #5328 Swarovski is a higher quality cut that features alternating large and small facets known as the xilion cut to help prevent counterfeiting. It is very rare to find the older #5301 cut on the market for sale, and if so, they tend to be Preciosa/CZ crystal look-alikes and NOT Swarovski. A close inspection and study will help you differentiate among the varying brands to help you get what you are paying for.
