Licit to attend weekly NO Masses with abuses?

I wonder if anyone could se if glass has been approved? I would be really surprised, given that the GIRM specifically points out glass as a bad vessel.

I don't think glass/crystal is noble... and I don't think they're allowed because they are breakable. I was clarifying my post which implied that material other than precious metals could never be used.

For a short time our church - under a lax pastor - used glass chalices until we got a new pastor who put an end to that. Keep in mind too that a lot of priests received crystal chalices as gifts before the rules changed. They may have permission from their bishops to use them on occasion.
