What is Crystal Made of?
Crystal is made from a mixture of silica (sand), lead oxide, and other additives. The addition of lead oxide is a defining characteristic of traditional crystal and contributes to its unique qualities such as clarity, brilliance, and the ability to be cut into intricate patterns. The lead content in crystal gives it a higher refractive index than regular glass, allowing it to sparkle when exposed to light.
The capacity of crystal to capture and refract light to create a stunning and sophisticated effect is well known. Crystal’s artistic appeal is further enhanced by the skill with which it is cut and shaped into a variety of forms, such as stemware, ornaments, and decorative items. Crystal is also widely used in the production of lighting fixtures. Crystal chandeliers, for example, are iconic celebratory focal points that cast dazzling light reflections throughout a room, creating an atmosphere of opulence and grandeur. The versatility of crystal extends to various forms of home décor, including vases, bowls, and sculptures, where its timeless beauty adds a touch of glamour to a variety of interior spaces.
The most popular application for crystal is in the production of barware and drinkware, which includes champagne flutes, wine glasses, water goblets, drinking glasses, and other elegant tableware.
