GENUINE BOHEMIA CRYSTAL hand-blown and hand cut lead crystal products show a high refractive index and GORGEOUS GLITTER. The presence of 24% lead oxide gives the crystal its shimmer and shine.

Crystal, is a variety of glass in which lead oxide replaces the calcium content of a typical potash glass. Crystal contains typically 18–40% (by weight) lead(II) oxide (PbO), while modern lead crystal, historically also known as flint glass due to the original silica source, contains a minimum of 24% PbO. Crystal is desirable owing to its decorative properties.

In the European Union, labeling of “crystal” products is regulated by Council Directive 69/493/EEC, which defines four categories, depending on the chemical composition and properties of the material. Only glass products containing at least 24% of lead oxide may be referred to as “lead crystal”. Products with less lead oxide, or glass products with other metal oxides used in place of lead oxide, must be labeled “crystallin” or “crystal glass”

Products made of Genuine Bohemian Crystal are heavier and more massive than comparable ordinary glass products. If you tap on glasses or open bowls, the lead crystal product will produce a long, bright ringing sound. The lead crystal color is neutral.

Genuine Bohemian Crystal uses state-of-the-art manufacturing technology where glass is hand-blown, hand cut and polished with acid etching. Genuine Bohemian Crystal is HEALTH-CONSCIOUS because, while adhering to the technological process, the surface of the crystal is physically and chemically stable and there is no release lead even during long-term storage of fluid in these products.
