Murano-based leaders in glass and lighting, Vistosi, has created a superior new lead-free crystal blend with enhanced transparency and strength. The new blend is the result of more than two years of research, and uses more refined ingredients, reduced levels of sodium, and the removal of lead from production of all Vistosi’s collections which, in addition to the performance benefits, is better environmentally. The best effects of the new blend – in terms of clarity and cut – can be seen in the Diamante, Damasco, Bolle and Assiba lights.
