Crystal is a treasured item in most households, but how do you tell if you have a good quality of crystal to show off? A good quality of crystal will have a clear, tint-free, distortion-free transparency. It will also have a fine, perfectly smooth rim. Quality crystal items will also have a long, elegant stem and a stable foot.
To judge the clarity and luster of crystal, hold the item against a pure white background. Quality crystal items will appear clear and tint-free. Inferior grades will appear cloudy, bluish or greenish. Not all high-quality crystal items are colorless. By adding mineral salts to the raw materials, glassmakers can make vibrant colors. Also, check the polish of the crystal piece. Quality crystal will have a permanent polish or luster that is a result of fire polishing.
