Thank you very much for your question. Stephen Koob the museums conservator has written a book entitled "Conservation and Care of Glass Objects". He states, "Crizzling is primarily associated with a chemical imbalance in specific glass compositions, but under certain circumstances, the deterioration can occur on almost any glass. Our understanding of the types of glasses that can undergo crizzling has recently expanded as more and more glasses have been examined. This form of deterioration can now be attributed to a combination of compositional and/or enviromental factors". I hope this information is helpful.
