Had it not been for a broken trophy in the package, I would probably not have discovered the differences between Glass and Crystal. Do you know?

I was of the assumption crystal was the same as glass. However, as the broken edges of the Crystal Globe Award did not give a cut and neither were they sharp, I wondered if something must be fishy!

That being said, Crystal is a type of Glass with added minerals (mostly Lead) – and that give it distinguishable properties: strong, heavy, and smooth edges when shattered, along with decorative properties.
