Got Bling?

Swarovski does — I mean, Lindsay Lohan's cellphone (above) is paved with their product so it must be phat.

The crystal purveyor has opened a museum in Vienna to display all manner of crystal–related things, among them:

• The world's largest kaleidoscope

• A huge crystal wall 36 feet high and 138 feet long, paved with over 12 tons of crystals

• A crystal–eyed giant with a waterfall spilling out of his mouth

• Works by Salvador Dali, Keith Haring and a mult–media installation by Brian Eno
