Glass Murano

What is the difference between glass and crystal?

Isn't crystal basically glass? My mom got crystal champagne glasses the other day and I mean what the f? It's glass dammit! I mean... I know that all solid matter is made of face or volume-centered cubic lattice or hexagonal or any lattice of atoms and so is glass, but... I just can't see the connection or difference between glass and so called "crystal".

So, what's the catch?

[I posted this in Physics because I doubt I'll get an explanation in Food & Drink > Beer, Wine & Spirits]
EDIT:

In fact... isn't glass an amorphous ceramic?

It's all marketing. What they call "crystal" is indeed glass, but a type of glass called more correctly "lead glass".

wikipedia:
Lead glass is a variety of glass in which lead replaces the calcium content of a typical potash glass. Lead glass contains typically 18–40 weight% lead(II) oxide (PbO), while modern lead crystal, historically also known as flint glass due to the original silica source, contains a minimum of 24% PbO Lead glass is desirable owing to its decorative properties.

Technically, the term crystal is not applied to glass, as glass, by definition, lacks a crystalline structure. The use of the term lead crystal remains popular for historical and commercial reasons, and originally stems from the Venetian use of the word cristallo to describe the rock crystal imitated by Murano glassmakers. This naming convention has been maintained to the present day to describe decorative hollow-ware.
