As a California Crystal Consumer, CrystalPlace wants you to be informed about California Proposition 65 as it pertains to your purchase of fine crystal and crystal products.
In November 1986, Californians approved an initiative (Proposition 65) to address exposure to toxic materials. More than 750 chemicals, some of which are naturally occurring and some synthetic, have been included in Proposition 65. Under this law, businesses are required to provide a "clear and reasonable" warning (as stated below) before knowingly or intentionally exposing anyone to a listed chemical. All companies that sell products in the State of California are required to comply with Proposition 65 labeling. It doesn't matter how much or how little of a substance exists in any product: if it has any at all, or may contain any, it must be labeled with this warning.
Proposition 65 is not a requirement of any other state, and it is NOT a mandate of the United States Government or any of its departments. Because CrystalPlace cannot control the final destination of its products, we inform all of our customers that they should voluntarily apply warning labels to the products that fall under Proposition 65 in the event they are purchased in California.
We hope this explanation helps clarify the requirements set forth by Proposition 65 and the need for the product warning labels. The Proposition 65 list is updated at least once a year. For specific information on Proposition 65, please visit http://www.oehha.org/prop65.html.

The warning: "Consuming foods or beverages that have been kept or served in leaded crystal products, or handling products made of leaded crystal, will expose you to lead - a chemical known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm" specifically refers to a California law entitled Proposition 65.”
