Drops & Spears
Crystal spears are recognized by the pointed tip at the bottom of the prism. It can vary in size, but is usually notched and significantly smaller than the longer body of the total prism. Spears come in many sizes up to 12 inch and can be found in many places on the chandelier, including around the bobeche or ringing a top bowl. Today, spears also come in many colors and usually are supplied with a top bead. There are many candelabras and wall sconces with crystal spears. Many times crystal spears will be the focal point of a chandelier because they command attention.
