Diamond the gem of April and the symbol of longevity is appropriate for this traditionally made Silesia pinwheel design. Used in Bohemia for beer. People here would typically use these for a long drinks. Now that you know it is used for beer in the old world, I'll bet you'll do it too.
Some reccomend 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 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.
