The term crystal is often used to refer to glassware that has
a more elegant form than the everyday glassware.
It has a misleading name because it is not crystal at all.
It is merely glass that contains lead oxide.
The use of the term crystal in glassware is retained
from the Venetian word Cristallo.
In the 15th century they used this word to describe the quartz
imitated by Italian glassmakers. For commercial reasons glassmakers started using the name crystal.
It has stuck around for centuries and remains popular.
