The haunting sound of crystal bowls seems to awaken an ancient remembering, to touch the essence of the soul and bring about a positive shift in our consciousness. Made from the highest quality quartz crystal, these beautiful instruments certainly create a magical and powerful effect of sound and vibration. The tones produced by crystal bowls are not just heard by the ear, they are felt in the body. With different tones resonating with particular energy centres and organs.
Quartz oscillates at a very high frequency, amplifying and transmitting tone and energy. This is why pure quartz crystal is used in all the world’s most advanced telecommunications systems. Like a powerful radio transmitter, the crystal singing bowls transmit potent vibrational energy. These pure crystal tones affect brain wave activity and can support the creation of an altered state of consciousness. As different parts of the brain are affected, it is considered likely that hormones and neuro-chemicals are released that can suppress pain, overcome addictions, strengthen willpower and foster creativity. The resonance and purity of the sound has a profoundly peaceful effect. Quartz also has memory and can be programmed with the use of intention.
Crystal singing bowls are made from 99.992 per cent pure crushed quartz heated to about 4000OC in a centrifugal mould. The process makes each bowl unique and although the larger bowls are more reverberant, the size of the bowl does not necessarily determine its note. By playing a bowl in different ways or by adding water you can alter the frequency. Some bowls harmonise with other bowls, and when both are played simultaneously, the effect is exquisite and synergistic.
Anyone can create a beautiful sound from the crystal singing bowls with no lessons. Simply circle the rim with a special suede mallet. You can play them at any time for just a few minutes and create a sacred space that restores and revitalises, nurtures insight and intuition and quiets the mental chatter. Ride the sound waves of the crystal singing bowl to a beautiful, tranquil place where you are aligned with the best that you are.
Most of us have only a small amount of pure, clear, healing sound in our lives. Our ears no longer get a daily exposure to running streams, bird songs, and the rustling leaves in the forest. The pure sonic waves that ring from the singing quartz crystal bowls wake up our ability to listen and to hear the sounds of the earth.
Singing bowls are wonderful for personal use and for holistic practitioners to support their healing modality. They are used for sound therapy, musical performance, group meditation, and workshop processes. Crystal bowls are even finding their way into traditional settings such as churches and business offices, bringing balance and harmony to every place they are used.
Available at the Crystal Castle and at our online shop.
“How amazing, having started searching the world for beautiful crystals since I was 25 years old, to now travel with Manya, my 25 year old daughter!
She has been playing with crystals at the Crystal Castle her entire life, and she sure has the eye and the gift to find beauty in the world and bring it back here to you, our Crystal Castle friends.
We caught up with old friends who have been finding crystals for us for decades, and while I didn’t have to teach Manya how to pick out the best, I did have to teach her how to say thank you in Chinese, Portuguese, Spanish, French and Arabic!
The team here is telling us this is the most beautiful collection of crystals they have seen, so come and check them out soon!”
