Lucite Plastic (circa 1960s-early 1980s) is a material that has both properties of plastic and glass and mirrors the clarity of glass. Lucite is heavier in “feel” compared to traditional plastics and is of the highest quality. Lucite was discovered in 1931 by Du Pont chemists. It was among the first plastics derived from petrochemicals and was sold to jewellery manufacturers after the war. Beads were mass produced in the 1960’s – early 1980s using this material.
