Some recommend that spirits and wine not be stored in lead crystal, but only served. However I do, and my family has for centuries with no negative results.
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 mountainous 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.
