Lead glass has lead added to it to make it more malleable when it’s being formed into things like lead crystal glasses (although apparently it’s not actually got a crystalline structure). Modern lead glass about 24% lead ( Pb) in it.

It’s renound for its clarity and is shown off when it is engraved with fine lines and geometric patterns.
