Beverages always taste better in crystal. This set of six crystal wineglasses have vertical ribs, a laurel wreath band, radiant cuts to the foot, and a knuckled balustrade stem. Holding eight ounces apiece (when filled to the rim), they'll ring beautifully with every "Cheers!".
Real, true crystal—the organic material—is the purest form of quartz. The best examples of rock crystal are as clear as glass; most samples have streaks or veins of cloudy white. Sometimes called "rock crystal," this natural stone is mined and (for many centuries) has been fashioned into jewelry, vases, chandelier pendants, and drinking vessels. It is from this original "crystal" that leaded glass gets its name (although leaded glass is not crystal at all).
