After a year of continuous processing at 1225 degrees, the furnace where the crystal is processed must be cleaned, but before it is switched off there is a magical moment destined for the processing of the “Black Crystal”
The thickened crucible on the bottom is collected and combined with the cobalt oxide reaching a total black, capable of absorbing the light completely. Only a few pieces, rare, perfect, unrepeatable, with an unprecedented sound are being produced by this process. The set consists of a glass for water and thin glasses for water, white wine, red wine, Mantengolo, flute, champagne. Each piece can be purchased individually. Perfect for giving, the sets of 6 are particularly recommended for an unforgettable wedding gift.
