What makes crystal better than glass?

Crystal wine glasses are, first and foremost, one of the most beautiful wine glasses that you can purchase.

The light refraction from the minerals in the crystal will make the stems sparkle.

The minerals also cause the crystal to be stronger, making it able to be spun very thin, increasing its beauty and airy feeling.

While glass is more affordable and durable, they don’t hold the same beauty that crystal glasses do.
