 In the crystalware & glassware industry, crystals were formerly referred to as lead glass which is a variety of glass where calcium content of glass is replaced by lead. Lead glass contains 18–40% of lead oxide. Lead crystalware products were previously used to store and serve drinks (beverageware). Due to health risks associated with lead, barium oxide, zinc oxide and potassium oxide were later introduced to replace lead oxide. This type of glass was named crystal glass. Glass products which contain 24% lead oxide are generally referred to as lead crystal while any products containing lead oxide less than 24% is referred to as crystal glass.
