Waterford's unique crystal products are handcrafted, so natural variations occur in the pieces. The Waterford website explains that small seeds or bubbles in crystal are not flaws, but instead they are items that form during the melting or fusing process. Tiny lines or cords also sometimes occur during the fusing process. These small distinctions are usually visible when light passes through the piece, and they serve to enhance its beauty and individuality.
