Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls
We are importers of the finest quality Frosted Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls. All our bowls are manufactured with patent technology, integrally shaped with the highest quality 99.99% pure silica crystal (which is pure quartz in nature) in a vacuum and dust-free environment, ensuring all impurities are avoided during the process of fabrication which creates a tighter bowl surface that results in deeper, fuller grounding tones that move gently through the body, the duration of the tone vibration is longer lasting, the energy field omitted is larger and more wide reaching, thus has a greater curative effect on the body, mind and the environment.
Are all bowls made the same?
Whilst quartz crystal singing bowls may look and sound similar, they’re most definitely not all made to the same standard and quality. Unfortunately it’s extremely difficult to discern by sight and sound alone. As with many products, quality of the manufacturing machinery, the manufacturing processes and quality control protocols can vary greatly from factory to factory.
All our bowls are manufactured with the latest high quality manufacturing equipment, patent technology and integrally shaped with the highest quality 99.99% pure silica crystal (which is pure quartz in nature) in a vacuum and dust-free environment, ensuring all impurities are avoided during the process of fabrication which creates a tighter bowl surface that results in deeper, fuller grounding tones that move gently through the body, the duration of the tone vibration is longer lasting, the energy field omitted is larger and more wide reaching, thus has a greater curative effect on the body, mind and the environment. We have stringent quality control processes in place both directly after manufacture and they’re checked again once they arrive in Melbourne.
The vast majority of our clients are practitioners in the metaphysical healing space and it is of utmost importance to have high quality bowls. As healers ourselves it is and has always been our goal to provide the very best quality bowls at the very best possible price, as the health and wellbeing of all our customers is of utmost importance. We have received a great deal of feedback from customers commenting on the difference in the ring duration, sound and overall quality of our bowls vs bowls they had previously purchased elsewhere and in many cases had cost them more.
How do they work?
Quartz crystal music holds the vibration of white light, which ultimately refracts into the rainbow and acts directly on our chakras when played.
The pure tone of crystal bowls produces a vibrational sound field that resonates the light body chakra and corresponding physical area. Clear Quartz contains the full spectrum of light that is related to the seven energy centres (known as chakras) and helps heal by bringing pure light through sound. Crystal is able to maintain the balance of electro-magnetic energies between the north and south poles. The same electro-magnetic field exists within all life forms. Clear quartz integrates the balance in our own electro-magnetic energies.
Crystal acts as an oscillator, magnifying and transmitting pure tone which is why pure silicon crystal is used in all of our most advanced telecommunication systems. Like a powerful radio transmitter, the crystal bowls transmit energy not only into to the human body but into the surrounding atmosphere for planetary balancing as well.
All matter is based on an atomic structure. The human body vibrates and the frequency at which an object or person most naturally vibrates is called resonance. The chakras, bones and organs in the body all vibrate at a different frequency or resonance. When an organ or part of the body is not vibrating properly it is then considered to be out of balance, this is when ‘dis-ease’ is often created. A body is in a healthy state of being when each cell and each organ creates a resonance that is in harmony with the whole being. Crystal bowl music is considered an excellent form of sound vibration therapy.
Challenging the Myth
Although many of the myths out there are fairly harmless, others have created uniquely deceptive, misleading or completely false information and claims as to the superiority of the quality and healing capabilities of these powerful sound therapy tools based on where they are manufactured.
Quartz crystal singing bowls are made from silica sand. Silica is the mineral quartz (Si020) and silicon is the element (Si) that is a major rock forming element in the Earth’s crust, so it is therefore found nearly everywhere.
Some sellers market bowls made from “American Quartz” or that they’re even made from 100% pure quartz crystal, and in some cases claim they are “Made in America” in an effort to set them apart, giving the illusion they are somehow superior to those made in China. The vast majority of manufacturers of quartz crystal singing bowls are in China as has been the case for many years, and then exported around the world.
Whilst it is difficult to ascertain the exact reason why some feel the need to heavily emphasize their products are made from “American Quartz” or “Made in the USA”, as there appears to be little reason for making such claims other than to justify the exorbitant prices charged. As we are energy healers it is vital we ourselves only use the highest quality bowls for use with our clients, and our knowledge and experience in this field has been integral in the testing process, because we have been able to fully energetically test our bowls against other bowls that have been claimed to be far more superior and our findings are quite clear… our bowls exhibit the same sound resonance and vibrational healing capabilities at a fraction of the price.
What is important to understand here is that the source of silica sand and where it is manufactured is of very little relevance in determining the sound, quality and healing capabilities of a bowl. Whether the silica sand comes from the United States, South America, India, or China, it exhibits the same healing qualities. And whilst it is almost impossible to verify the exact origin of the quartz used in making any particular bowl, quite simply: Quartz is Quartz.
Therefore, it is important to understand what does make the difference between producing a high quality true tone bowl and one of poorer quality is actually in the manufacturing process not where the silica sand is from or where it is manufactured.
All our bowls are manufactured in China with patent technology, integrally shaped with the highest quality 99.99% pure silica sand in a vacuum and dust-free environment, ensuring all impurities are avoided during the process of fabrication resulting in a tighter bowl surface. This tighter bowl surface results in deeper, fuller grounding tones which move gently through the body, the duration of the tone vibration lasts longer, the energy field omitted is larger and more wide reaching and has a greater curative effect on the body, mind and the environment.
Like any other product manufactured anywhere in the world, you can get cheaper versions, singing bowls are no different… quality and price can vary greatly from factory to factory. Over many years we have bought and tested bowls from a great number of manufacturers so we can offer the highest quality true tone bowls at the cheapest possible price.
Our suppliers factory is one of the highest quality we have come across and the USA is their largest export market.
Unfortunately some of our customers have told us they had previously bought bowls on sites such as eBay and other retailers but have been disappointed with the sound and quality they produced. After hearing our bowls they were amazed at the difference.
Many of our clients are repeat customers for personal use and others are practitioners such as reiki healers, yoga and meditation studios, sound healers, chiropractors, kinesiologists, colour therapists etc. often purchasing multi bowl sets.
We have had only the most positive feedback from our customers as we pride ourselves on knowledge, quality, price and service.
What can they be used for?
Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls are very diverse and can be used for many purposes, such as:
• Eliminating negative energy
• Chakra aligning and cleansing
• Helping to balance the energy system of body
• Transmitting positive energy
• Clearing energy in the home, space and environment
• Raising the vibration of our space to pure positive energy
• Clearing negative or unwanted energies from objects
• Clearing crystals
• Meditation & sound healing
• Energising the Physical and Energetic Bodies
• Making Structured Water
• Playing as a musical instrument
How can they influence my health?
Sound Vibration healing is based on the idea that all illness or disease is characterised by blockage in the channels. When there is blockage, the organ in question cannot vibrate at a healthy frequency and thus it develops physical symptoms or illness. Through sound vibration one can break up, dissolve and release these blockages and thus improve symptoms in our physical body.
Furthermore, put quite simply, listening to the bowls puts you into an alpha brainwave state almost immediately. This state creates a relaxation of the mind and body. A relaxed, less stressed body and mind is a healthier body and mind.
How can I get the most out of my bowl?
Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls are extremely versatile healing tools.
Regardless of the bowl tone used, it is possible to target or direct the bowls energy to a specific chakra by alchemising the bowl with specific crystals related to that particular chakra or to achieve the vibrational output of all 7 chakras by alchemising the bowl with a chakra pyramid (click here for image and pricing). Whilst it won’t achieve quite the same depth of vibration and healing as having one of each chakra bowl, the chakra pyramid does enable one bowl to direct energy to all 7 chakras.
An extremely important tool to use and can be used in conjunction with the chakra pyramid is the Black Tourmaline Pyramid (click here for image and pricing). Because quartz crystal singing bowls are so high vibrational they can cause us to become ungrounded or exacerbate those already ungrounded. Being ungrounded causes anxiety, fear and takes us off centre. When we’re off centre we can be overly reactional and easily triggered, so it is vitally important to be / stay grounded. In addition it aids the removal of negative energies within yourself and your space, breaks down electromagnetic radiation sending the unwanted energy down to earth, cleanses your energy and brings a calming effect.
For those seeking to heal on a deeper level, alchemising with Platonic Solids (click here for image and pricing) which represent the sacred geometry that exists in all of nature thus within each of us. Each geometric shape has specific (mathematical) structural qualities that are associated with one of our five main elementals. When one or more of our elementals are out of alignment, life force energy is not able to flow unhindered and thus becomes depleted, non existent resulting in disturbances within your energetic fields which can cause physical, emotional and mental issues.
Tetrahedron – Fire (the male energy, confidence, self expression and creativity)
Hexahedron – Earth (the ego and our perceived identity)
Octahedron – Air (the mind and the child)
Dodecahedron – Spirit (the / soul spirit)
Icosahedron – Water (the female energy, the intuitive and emotions)
How do I know what size bowl to buy?
We are frequently asked this question.
In many cases this is often determined by budget and in some cases space is limited so purchasing the smaller bowl may be the best option.
If space and budget is not an issue we provide the following guidelines:
The larger the bowl the lower the pitch tends to be and the greater the resonance. The energy and vibration of the larger bowls penetrate deeper into our energy body so if we look at healing ourselves it’s vibration penetrates deeper thus greater healing. Additionally in respect to cleansing and clearing our space or home environment then it stands to reason that the larger bowl will clear the environment more efficiently in less time.
We have had many clients who have bought solely on price and have later returned to buy a larger size. It is far better to purchase based on your specific requirements rather than be driven by cost alone.
Ultimately your choice is a matter of personal preference. We are always happy to assist you further if you require more assistance in making the right choice for your individual needs.
The full range of sizes we offer are: 10″ 12″ 14″ 16″ & 18″ (18″ available in F tone only)
* All bowls include o-ring and striker
Why do you only have 4 sizes?
As healers our objective for the use of quartz crystal singing bowls is to achieve the most optimum healing for the mind and body, the home or business and the environment. Through our own rigorous testing it is our conclusion that anything below 10” is insufficient in providing the necessary depth of healing required to be of any real benefit. That below 10” lends itself more to audible pleasantries than for any real healing benefits.
The largest in our range being the 16” provides the necessary depth of vibration to penetrate the body’s energy field for optimum results. Anything above 16” becomes rather cumbersome making it difficult to transport in the car and around the home.
Essentially we offer the sizes 10”, 12”, 14” and 16” because this range provides the minimum necessary requirement for any beneficial healing being the 10” to the optimum being the 16” whilst still maintaining easy transportability. However by popular demand for those wanting a larger bowl we are currently stocking 18″ available in F tone only.
What if I want a full Chakra Set?
We don’t offer ‘standard’ 7 bowl sets as from our perspective it’s far better to allow you to customise a combination that best suits your specific needs / requirements rather than lock you into a combination that’s not entirely fit for purpose.
The common standard 7 bowl chakra sets on offer are 6” to 12” (6”, 7”, 8”, 9”, 10”, 11” & 12”) and in fewer cases 8” to 14” (8”, 9”, 10”, 11”, 12”, 13” & 14”).
Whilst they may achieve the objective of one bowl for each chakra, these sets are extremely limiting, as firstly they contain mainly the smaller bowls which are not sufficient in achieving the depth of energy penetration required for any meaningful healing or change. Furthermore the sets are fixed in respect to the size / tone combination, so where you may prefer a C and F tone in the largest sizes, is it usually not possible as these sets are designed for a sale rather than designed with purpose and with true healing at the forefront.
Typically those looking at buying 7 bowl sets are often practitioners (sound and vibration healers, sound bath, meditation and yoga facilitators and alike). In this space the clear objective is for healing purposes, and at the same time a pleasant experience for client/s, not just for sound using different tones. With that goal in mind, the smaller bowls (in our opinion through our own rigorous testing, anything below 10” is insufficient in providing the necessary depth of healing required to be of any real benefit). In addition, it is important to note that the smaller the bowl, the higher pitched it sounds, and from experience, a great many find the smaller bowls irritating which in itself is counter productive.
The most important factor to be considered here is the depth of penetration into the body’s energy system. The larger bowls (14” and above) have a lower pitch that is much more pleasing to the ear but more importantly provide far greater resonance thus deeper penetration conducive for optimum healing.
With that said, we can now give explanation as to why the flexibility to choose your own combination of sizes is so important. Like most things in life what’s suitable for one is not necessarily suitable for another. For example, a sound healer with a larger audience may require mostly larger bowls just to achieve the reach necessary for all participants to receive the full experience and healing required. We have had many practitioners who have received negative and disappointing feedback from their clients who were positioned farthest away as they were unable to feel the bowls vibration. The issue here is that the smaller bowls resonance or reach is far less than that of the larger bowls, thus in this scenario the requirement for mostly if not all bowls to be at least 14”, preferably 16” (or a combination) would achieve the most desired outcome for all participants.
If you’re playing to a smaller audience, it is still advisable to have at least 1 or 2 of the larger bowls in the set for the purpose of achieving an optimum level and depth of healing during the session.
So the flexibility to tailor the set to your specific needs is paramount.
Here are some common chakra sets many of our clients have chosen:
2 x 10″, 2 x 12″, 2 x 14″ 1 x 16″
3 x 12″, 3 x 14″, 1 x 16″
4 x 14”, 3 x 16”
3 x 14”, 3 x 16”, 1 x 18”
We are happy to discuss your specific requirements and can provide personalised guidance to assist you in determining the most appropriate combination to achieve your set goals.
How do I play it?
While quite easy to use and care for here are some tips to help maximise your enjoyment and maintain your bowl.
It can be helpful to gently tap the bowl with the supplied rubber striker to initiate the bowl singing, then simply begin running the striker around the top of the bowl.
Apply the striker with gentle pressure to the outer edge, approximately 1 inch from the rim. Begin circling the outside of the crystal singing bowl while maintaining an even pressure and gentle fluid motion. If the striker is skipping apply a little more pressure and slow down the speed. As the bowl begins to vibrate you can gently adjust the speed to change the intensity of sound and vibration.
How do I care for my bowl?
Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls are a beautiful and delicate instrument. With proper care and correct maintenance they can remain beautifully radiant for a lifetime. Always handle your bowl with extreme care especially when carrying or transporting. It is essential that only suitable strikers, mallets and rubber o-rings be used.
Just like a crystal if the Crystal Singing Bowl is dropped or knocked it may break. Please take note of the following cautions.
• When moving bowls: Do not pick up from one side only, doing so may result in your bowl cracking.
• Pick up and hold bowl from both sides of rim (with two hands) or from base. Be sure to have its weight fully supported.
• When using your Crystal Singing Bowl ensure the bowl is on an even flat surface with appropriate room to play. When using multiple bowls it is best to have at least one foot apart.
• Striking the top rim of a Crystal singing bowl may result in cracking and we advise against this action.
• When using the rubber mallet, only the rubber area should touch the bowl, make sure the wooden handle does not make contact with the bowl as it can cause it to crack.
• If placing crystals or items inside the bowl, always be very careful, and place a cloth or piece of fabric in the bottom to prevent scratching or cracking the bowl. Dropping items inside may result in breakage.
• To cleanse larger items or crystals such as salt lamps, caves etc. simply place bowl near to the item and play the bowl.
Bowls can become stained through general usage. Both suede and rubber mallets will shed fibers or particles while playing. These particles can lodge into the exterior of bowl, overtime this may have an impact on the bowls sound and vibration.
Routine cleaning of your bowl keeps them free of dust and debris accumulated through storage and use. With regular cleaning bowls often become brighter sounding. We recommend cleaning with demineralised water and mild dish washing soap.
Use a soft hand cloth (microfiber cloths will stick to frosted bowls) or soft bristle brush (a soft toothbrush is ideal) to do any kind of cleaning. Do not use steel wool/metal, as it will scratch or damage the bowl. Frosted bowls with stains may benefit from a light steam cleaning. A small handheld steam cleaner can be used for this application (but please be gentle).
No matter what you use, always rinse your bowl with clean preferably demineralised water. Bowls can be dried using a hair dryer (on low heat), wiping with towel or let air dry while it sit is upside down on a towel.
