About a year ago Swarovski has launched their 8981 Crystal Butterfly as an addition to the lighting and architecture collection. This dazzling element is H51 mm x W43 mm big and comes with beautiful pastel blue surface coating – Blue Aurora Borealis. Although it was designed and created to bring brilliance and beauty to interior design projects, this crystal butterfly is also very popular as an statement element for jewelry design. Due to its huge success Swarovski now introduces an extension: the XL Butterfly, H85 mm x W103 mm.
A Dazzling Innovation
Introducing the bigger and slightly more brilliant crystal butterfly is not the only Swarovski innovation here. Especially relevant ist the fact that it now also comes with an integrated dimmable LED option for even more sparkle and brilliance. Both LED as well as a non-LED version feature an innovative, chrome-plated zinc body which, in combination with its crystal facets, refracts light beautifully and creates an explosion of translucent rainbow-hued tones. Both these versions of the Swarovski XL Butterfly are perfect for dramatic accent pieces in interior design schemes. Luxury hotel lobbies, wellness areas, fancy restaurants, high-end private apartments – all of these objects will achieve bespoke interior value and a sense of glamour with this element. Furthermore, it will also create a stunning effect and a breathtaking atmosphere when used as a decoration for various kind of events, such as weddings, fashion shows, corporate events, etc.
Non-LED XL Butterfly
The eye-catching appearance of the non-LED version offers endless aesthetic possibilities to lighting projects. For a stunning experience, we recommend threading multiple non-LED Butterflies onto strands or hung them from chandeliers. Such decorative constructions are extremely easy to make, thanks to the minimum hole diameter of 1.2 mm. Therefore, this XL Butterfly can be easily mounted both vertically and horizontally.
- Dimmable LED version for individual light effects
- Comes without power supply for maximum flexibility in design and application
- Pre-mounted on steel rope
- Stunning Crystal Blue AB effect for romantic yet modern vibe
LED XL Butterfly
The Swarovski XL Butterfly with integrated LED is especially designed to give edge to lighting installations. Due to its stunning Blue Aurora Borealis effect, this element will create a spectacular effect when its pale blue and pink iridescence is magnified and cast on walls by the LED option. And since this LED option is dimmable, it enables achieving various levels of mood lighting. The XL Butterfly in this LED version comes with a 0.54 mm pre-mounted steel rope and without power supply. As a result, the end user has a maximum of flexibility in terms of design and application.
- Vertical and horizontal suspension possible

- Stunning Crystal Blue AB effect for a playful but also a sophisticated design
Design Idea for an Extraordinary Appearance
In order to achieve an exceptional design we recommend to combine the Swarovski XL Butterfly (H85 mm x W103 mm) with its smaller sibling Butterfly for creating mesmerizing shapes on walls and other surfaces. Try configuring multiple elements of the smaller and larger sizes to create a sense of dramatic beauty.
- Offers high differentiation potential due to its unique shape and size
- Enables creation of extraordinary light fixtures
- Blue Aurora Borealis effect for a stunning light refraction
- Gives uniqueness and edge to architecture and lighting projects
- Versatility in application
- Timeless design element; never goes out of style
