Many crystal beads are made and cut in China. Chinese crystal is a very broad term. In general, Chinese crystal beads are lead based crystal.
Celestial Crystal® glass beads are not lead crystal beads. Crystal just happens to be part of the name of the bead. However there are some colors of Celestial Crystal--red, purple and pink--that contain a small amount of lead to create the red-based colors.
