What is the difference between glass and crystal?
Bohemia crystal is glass mass made from silica, soda and lead oxide. Bohemia glass is made from soda or potash, lime and silica and contains no lead oxide at all. Lead oxide makes the glass mass heavier, thicker and softer – which enables us to cut into it. It also increases the clarity and light refraction of glass mass. On the other hand Czech glass is thinner, more fragile and harder.
That is why the Czech glass is not decorated by cutting, but rather by engraving and painting. In the USA glass, which contains more that 1% of lead oxide, is considered to be crystal. However, Bohemia or Czech crystal contains between 10 – 30% of lead oxide. Particularly our hand-made crystal contains 24% of lead oxide, which is the top quality. 30% crystal is too soft and it is used for some of the crystal trimmings only.
