Crystal Singing Bowls?
Crystal singing bowls are
that emit a focused note or tone.
What are Crystal Bowls
Crystal singing bowls are made
from quartz crystal that
has been fired at extreme
temperatures until it forms a
quartz glass. Some bowls are
“fusion bowls” which
means they are made from quartz
and another mineral or metal
which fuse together during
the firing process.
What is Quartz?
Quartz in crystal form consists
of molecules of silicon dioxide
arranged in a highly
structured geometric pattern.
Quartz crystal is piezoelectric,
which means it develops an
(or a sustainable resonance)
when mechanical stress is applied to it.
Quartz’s ability to resonate
and sustain a precise frequency
has made it a common transmitter
and receiverin crystal oscillators
found in watches, radios,
phonographs and computers
around the globe.
How are they played?
The bowls are played by gently
striking them and then carrying
their resonance the by using a
suede or rubber "wand".
What do they sound like?
Their tone and frequency can be
highly hypnotic, therapeutic and soothing
while simultaneously penetrating, intense
and emotional. The sounds they
emit are not only audibly heard,
but also felt in the physical body.
