Dictionary Terms Explained
- Man made, very sparkly
Lead crystals (sometimes referred to as “crystal” or “leaded glass”) reflect light in wondrous ways, often creating rainbows and sparkles on the wall when the light hits them just right. They are great for hanging in windows or anywhere the light can get to them. Many hang them up to bring more light into their lives and make their surroundings magical. Hanging crystals such as these are termed 'bright objects' in feng shui bringing positive energy into a house and can be hung in spaces that need "energising".
Lead crystal is manufactured by adding lead oxide to molten glass. It is then machine cut into shapes. The higher the lead content the greater the “refractive index”, or in other words, the greater the sparkle. As the lead content goes up it becomes harder to form the crystal and therefore the price for higher lead content also tends to be higher. The maximum lead content is about 35%.
Nymboida Crystals are based in Australia and have a gorgeous range of their own designs. They only use good quality lead crystal and their items are made in Australia, with a keen focus put on their construction.
