The term ‘Crystal’ originally derived from the Italian term ‘Cristallo’. The presence of lead in the composition allows the material to be worked at lower temperatures to achieve a finer result and the resulting effect is that the glass appears a lot thinner. The presence of lead softens the glass and makes it more suitable for cutting and engraving. Crystal wine glasses & flutes, tumblers, vases and bowls make a very satisfying and clear bell-like sound when flicked. This is in contrast with the dull thud-like sound of glass.
Glass has been used over the millennia. It is made from silica sand and other minerals such as soda ash and limestone. Glass is even made when lightning simply strikes sand – this is called Fulgurite. The oldest known glassware found was dated from 1400 B.C. Good glassware is clear and tint-free, more cost-effective in comparison to crystal and more durable.
