Crystal Quartz Singing Bowls
Each Quartz Crystal Singing Bowl is designed to be sturdy, durable. and long lasting. They vary in size from 5 inches on up to 28 inches. They also vary in pitch, ranging from high and clear to deep and soothing. Generally, the larger the bowl, the longer the sound will reverberate or sustain and the lower the pitch will be.
Each of our Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls at Silver Sky Imports includes a rubber O-ring, a small rubber circle which serves as a stand for the bowl if you wish to play it on a table or any other surface. The bowls also include a soft suede striker. The suede is very high quality and is the best material to use to emit the highest quality tone from the Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls.
What are they made of?
Our Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls are made from pure quartz crystal, a naturally occurring element. The crystal is formed to shape with heat near 4000 degrees. The temperature is so high that any impurities are burned off. The crystal matrix is reformed using this manufacturing technique, providing a much stronger and sonorous bowl than you would get out of lower temp quartz glass mixtures.
There are several variations in the manufacture of the different styles of crystal bowls. For instance Frosted or Empyrean bowls are made in a mold and heated and spun into shape, while Clear quartz products are made from extruded Quartz tubing. The processes for manufacture help to determine the sound in the end. The Frosted singing bowls tend to have an octave higher sound than the Clear quartz or Featherlight bowls in the same size.
The musical tones of our Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls are incredibly pure sine wave sounds. For more advanced crystal bowl users, the Quartz Singing Bowls are ideal for creating sustained harmonies and complex tonal structures with multiple bowls like our crystal bowl sets. The notes sustain for a generous period of time, making the bowls widely used for meditation and sound healing use. The pure tones also make the bowls perfect for the musically inclined. Perfect pitch crystal singing bowls make a perfect companion to the guitar or piano. Voice is also an incredible match with the pure tones of the bowls. The bowls are now found in yoga studios, at kirtan, and in spa and massage settings, and are becoming more common every day.
Methods of Healing and Meditation
There are many different modalities using Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls for healing. The most important factor is that you take the time to get to know your bowl. Learning the best method for creating a good healing and relaxation environment by trying several things and sticking with what feels the most comfortable is the best way to succeed with our Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls.
Crystal Singing Bowls and Chakras
Just like our Tibetan singing bowls, our Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls have notes we can determine, using a portable tuner. These notes are said to correlate with the Chakra system, a balancing system that is said to be affected by the tones related to the individual chakras.
Please be aware...
As crystal has a very rigid form, overplaying a bowl through pressure or volume can lead to damage to the bowl itself. A recommended 12" of distance from any person to the bowl or between the bowls during play will prevent accidents involving the bowls.
