What Are Crystals

The word “crystal” comes from the Greek krystallos, meaning “coldness drawn together”. The scientific definition explains that a crystal is a solid whose atoms are arranged in a “highly ordered” repeating pattern. If a mineral has its atoms arranged in one of them, then that mineral is a crystal. When liquids cool and start to harden, crystals form in a process called crystallization. For example, when water hardens into a snowflake is a crystal.

Crystal Glass

Crystal glass does not contain a crystalline structure in its material compound. In this case, the name is derived from the Italian term “Cristallo”, which was used for high-end hand-blown glass in Murano, Italy. Crystal glass has added metal oxide to make it slightly porous, giving it the ability to refract light brilliantly into rainbows. This makes it a choice option for vases, champagne flutes, chandeliers, and ornaments.
