Day 13-Crystal

Crystal

 

Crystal is Blenko’s name for clear glass and has been produced continuously since 1946.  Because the contaminants in most glass turn it a pale green, Blenko must add a de-colorizer such as magnesium oxide to counteract the contaminants.  While most Crystal water bottles are not greatly prized there are some that are highly sought after.
