Hall Flutes makes "crystal" flutes of Pyrex glass.

 

This is a neat instrument...it is a quite lovely, visually striking flute.

This is not a particularly easy flute to play, I think mainly because of the unique "raised lip" embouchure hole construction, but once you get used to it, it does play, and has a roughly two-and-a-half octave diatonic range.

This flute cannot be pushed very hard, and plays with a soft tone and a moderate volume. 

While not a useful instrument for sessions, it is a fun way to get a playable flute at home for under $100.  Also, the volume is soft enough that it won't be offensive to family or neighbors.
