Beading Term: Facet

A facet on a stone or a bead is a flat panel. Some beads, such as Charlottes, may be perfectly round with just one facet. Others may have several facets and no edges. Others may have no facets at all.

Because of how the panels reflect light from different angles, faceted beads and stones often have a shimmering quality.
