K9 is a Chinese Optical Crystal manufactured in China which is not a true crystal. It is often marketed as "crystal" or "faux crystal" or "imitation crystal". Chinese crystal is often molded and pressed, this often results in visible seams in the glass and does not produce the same precision facets and edges that feature in more expensive European or Egyptian crystal.
Chinese crystal can be great if your budget is low but just make sure that you are not paying more than you should and do not expect to get that classic colour and fire that is associated with more expensive crystal.
