“Stan Lee was a master storyteller,” Swarovski Creative Director, Giovanna Engelbert said in a press release. “He has given the world some incredibly influential and exciting superheroes, so it has been a genuine honor to delve into these Marvel® favorites and express their individual qualities with our crystals.”

Inspired by iconic Marvel comic book characters, the 15-piece collection features an exciting range of rings, pendants, bracelets and crystal figures. Approximately 5 inches tall, the crystal figurines include the Hulk, Iron Man, Black Panther, Spiderman and Captain Marvel rendered in full colour with between 578 to 955 facets.

Two extra special pieces include the crystal-embellished figurines of Captain Marvel and Spider-Man. Both figures are much larger than the other crystal figures, with Captain Marvel standing at 10 inches tall and Spider-Man at 22 inches tall. Interestingly, both figurines were made using more than ten thousand crystals which explains the hefty price tag of US $10,000 and US $23,000 respectively.
