According to European norms, glass goods containing less than 4% lead oxide, is defined as "glass". Glass product that contains more than 10% of lead is "crystal". Glass that contains more than 30% of lead  is described as "high-lead crystal ".
By contrast, in the U.S. just 1% of lead is enough to be classified as crystal glass.
In Bohemia, it is rather a question of meaninig of words so that the term crystal can be used for any sophisticated high-quality glass.Accordind to this,lead crystal is crystal that contains more than 24% PbO
