Glass vs. crystal wine glasses
Glass vs Crystal: The primary difference between crystal vs. glass is that crystal glass contains anywhere from 2-30% minerals (lead or lead-free). The key feature of crystal wine glasses is that the minerals strengthen the material, making it possible to produce durable but thin wine glasses. My take is when, why what would be your personal preference when it comes to these two glasses.
