Crystal Goblet VS Glass Goblet

One is that the mineral composition of the wine glass makes the wine glass refract light, making the crystal glass look bright and clear; It has enough firmness to rotate the glass body for wine tasting. Crystal glasses are more crystal clear than ordinary wine glasses, and they are more affordable and durable.
