The Miracle beads are so called because when you look at them and as the photos show, it looks like there is a bead within the bead. This is actually just an effect achieved by the process in which the bead is made. The Miracle beads start out as Lucite beads, then the "miraculous" properties of these beads begin. The Lucite core is finished in a mirrored silver plate which is then coated in multiple layers of vibrant lacquer. Light passes through the multiple layers of lacquer and is then reflected back through the lacquer due to the mirror-like properties of the plating. The reflected light radiates a glowing illusion of shimmery depth.
