  During special occasions, it is customary to drink wine, champagne, and other alcoholic beverages to celebrate. It is very common to bring out the wine glasses or the crystal. However, it is not easy to differentiate glass and crystle by first sight. As a professional glassware supplier, he can distinguish between glasses and crystal quickly.


   How can we differentiate glass and crystle quickly? We can distinguish from following these main ways: clarity, rim and sound.

Clarity: Glass, especially those made from soda-lime, are cloudy even when held up against the light. Crystal, on the other hand, is known for its clarity. This is why crystal is a popular choice for chandeliers, jewelry and stemware. The higher the lead content in crystal, the greater the clarity.


Rim:Glass usually has a thicker rim than crystal, as it is made thicker for more durability. On the other hand, crystal has the capability of being spun thin while maintaining its strength.


Sound: Another key difference between glass and crystal is the sound that it makes when tapped. Crystal produces a ringing sound like a "ping" when it is clinked. On the flip side, glass makes a low sound like a "thud."


In conclusion, glass and crystal each have their own advantages and disadvantages. Learning how to differentiate these two, customers and purchasers can choose production according to their own commend and preferences.
