Emerald is the gemstone of May. This wonderful little gem of a candy dish would be a great addition to any home. It reminds me of my Aunts bridge group, having a similar dish on the table with nuts or candy to snack on as they played.
Julia Crystal is located in Southern Poland in the Bohemia Silesia area. Blessed with an abundance of the necessary raw materials, including a clear, fresh mountain spring, the area developed an assemblage of gifted artisans-- the "Julia Family."
I Proudly bring you what many consider to be the finest crystal in the world. Julia (prounounced "Yooleeah"), located in Piechowice which is in the southwest mountainious region of Poland. Julia has a long tradition of perfecting this art. The finest silica mixed with 24% lead. Lead is used so that the crystal can be carved, and polished. Lead keeps it from chipping in this process. Many reccommend that lead crystal only be used for serving not storing liquid. It has never cause a problem for me or my family going back centuries however.
