Composition of crystal glass made in the middle of XIXth century at Gus-Khrustalnyi factory


This is the first study of crystal glass composition made on a sample produced at Gus-Khrustalnyi factory in the middle of the XIXth century. A sample studied is a potassium-calcium glass with a low lead content. The receipt of such composition has been firstly developed in the middle Europe in the second half of the XVIIth century and then improved in the beginning of XVIIIth. A possibility to use a portable XRF spectrometer for express analysis of historical glasses is demonstrated.
Key words: silicate glass, history of glassmaking, XRF analysis, Raman spectroscopy, luminescence spectroscopy.
