Pure Quartz crystal singing bowls are designed in France and patented by SAINT-GOBAIN in the 1980s and is manufactured using an industrial process. They are available in frosted, clear, coloured, mineral fusion, and handle bowl styles. Each singing bowl has different resonant properties, available in many sizes, pitches, healing usage for various wellness practice. They are among the sacred sound and vibratory instruments of our contemporary world.
How is a crystal singing bowl made?
- The quartz or silicon dioxide is reduced to powder and impurities are removed.
- The quartz powder is placed in a very high-temperature furnace to obtain its crystallisation. the fluid produced is poured by centrifugation into a cast to form its definitive shape and size.
- The bowl is then treated with gas to give its frosted appearance(for frosted bowls)
- it is cleaned in several water baths, then cooled by sandblasting. It is lightly polished to give its smooth surface and pure transparency, which will also define the musical note. (for clear bowls)
The octave and note of the bowls are co-related to its diameter, height and size. Rare gemstones, crystals, precious metals, rare earth, rare metals are added into the manufacturing process to obtain crystal singing bowls infused with the healing properties of those rare elements.
Like the ancient Tibetan bowls, the crystal singing bowls are used as sound tools, coupling awareness and intention in their use can increase their effectiveness. Just by listening to the rich, pure vibrations and tones of the singing bowls, one can find a deep sense of relaxation, rejuvenation, and even stirring strings of emotions and states of well being. By using the intention and awareness techniques, the practitioner can guide the recipients into states of clarity, meditative space, balancing of chakras, clearing of energetical blockages and so much more.
There are many tones that the crystal singing bowls have. Different tones will resonate/activate the different energetic centres(Chakras), organs, and organ system in our body. For example, emerald activates the heart chakra, while citrine activates the solar plexus chakra. The alchemy bowls combine the effects of tone and gemstones, mineral, rare earth, metal. When the bowl is played, the tone of the bowl is doing its work and the consciousness of the gemstone or metal or mineral is doing its work. Thus, every bowl is different.
Scientific studies have shown that sound has an effect in the autonomic, immune, endocrine and neuropeptide systems in our body. Every atom, molecule, cell, gland, and organ of the human body absorbs and emits sound. As crystal singing bowls are made from crystalline structures, our whole body is 60-70% liquid, our DNA, blood, bones and the crystal-colloidal liquid of the brain therefore aligns with the crystals’ inherent structure. Sound therapy is able to generate a feeling of relaxation and deep states of wellness, which has been proven to lead the body into a place of homeostasis, which assists the body in self-generative healing.
